Spirit of Shuhada Street was shot in Hebron's old city, known by locals as Ghost Town, due to the mass emigration from the area due to the collective punishment closure of their city’s lifeline, Shuhada Street. Along with local human rights activists, Issa Amro and Zleikha Muhtaseb, and others working on a grassroots community level, audiences will discover the resilience and inventiveness of Hebron residents, the history, law and psychogeography of the area, as well as a wider discussion on modes of resistance, community and international solidarity movements, autonomy, recuperation, and acting like you’ve already won.
