Full schedule here.
One of the films is The People and the Olive. An inspiring film about the daily struggles and joys of Palestinian olive farmers. When a group of American ultra-marathoners sets out to run 129 miles in 5 days across the West Bank, they discover that in replanting uprooted olive trees, they are planting hope and building cultural bridges. The People and the Olive was filmed during The Run Across Palestine in February 2012, as a project of a Michigan-based nonprofit group. On the Ground works to support sustainable community development in farming regions across the world. The run was supported by the Palestine Fair Trade Association, a collective of over 2500 small-scale farmers in the West Bank who have embraced fair trade practices to sustain their future and to sell their products worldwide.
