Join us for the West Coast premiere of Nili Dotan's Desert Wounds

With an international refugee crisis afflicting the entire globe, Desert Wounds follows the specific journeys of two women from Sudan and Eritrea, who are fleeing war, dictatorship, and religious persecution in their countries. Over a five-year period, they seek asylum in Israel, later in Uganda, attempting to build new lives while still remaining under the constant threat of deportation.

A Q&A will follow the film.

Co-presented by the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Project at PSU, Never Again Coalition, the Institute for Judaic Studies and Beit Haverim.
