Voices Forward is proud to present works by Israeli and Palestinian groups and individuals that deploy media in the art of resistance. This year’s events include Hebron – In the Eye of the Storm, an exhibition curated by OCAD alumna Henrjeta Mece. The multi-media installation employs photography and video projections to present amateur images of soldiers and civilians screened aside acclaimed video artist Richard Fung (Professor at OCAD) and a recent broadcast initiative from the city of Hebron.

The Exhibition features:
PROJECTED PHOTOGRAPHS from Breaking the Silence an organization of veteran Israeli soldiers who have documented interviews with hundred of soldiers who have served in the Occupied Territories during the Second Intifadah and ActiveStills, a group of Israeli and Palestinian documentary photographers who focused on the last forty years of history in Hebron. The images were prepared by photographers Miki Kratsman and Eldad Rafaelie.

JEHAD IN MOTION: Jehad Aliweiwi is a Palestinian Canadian who lives in Toronto and regularly returns to visit his family in Hebron. The compelling video projection is a double portrait of the man and the two cities he calls home. Jehad synthesizes the challenges and possibilities in these two very different but overlapping worlds. Jehad in Motion ruminates on diaspora urban space and the interpenetration of politics and cultures. It is also an intervention into the practices of documentary media, portraiture and installation art.

HBRON STORIES: Three short films Introduction, Tel Rumeida and Error from the Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem. In January 2007, B'Tselem launched "Shooting Back", a video advocacy project that provides Palestinian families who live in close proximity to settlements or military bases, with video cameras to film their reality.

HEB2: An experimental community channel www.heb2.com broadcasting over the Internet the daily life in the Israeli-controlled (‘H2’) sector of Hebron, Palestine. Involving its residents as both film subjects and filmmakers, Heb2 is an experiment in documentary filmmaking.
