Emory University's Center for Ethics is presenting the movie "My Neighborhood," Thursday, February 14 at 7 p.m. as part of its Ethics at the Movies film series.

"My Neighbourhood" chronicles the story of Mohammed El Kurd, a Palestinian teenager whose family is forced to share a section of their East Jerusalem home with Israeli settlers. When Israeli activists arrive in his neighborhood to join residents in protests against the settlements, Mohammed comes of age in the midst of unrelenting tension with his neighbors and unexpected cooperation with Israeli allies in his backyard.

"My Neighbourhood," produced by Just Vision Media, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2012, and has since been met with support at venues including the Paley Center for Media, the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, the Al Jazeera International Film Festival and the European Parliament.

Directed by Julia Bacha and Rebekah Wingert-Jabi, the screening will be followed by a discussion about the film and of the increasingly urgent situation in East Jerusalem with guest speakers, including leading expert on Jerusalem, Attorney Daniel Seidemann, and Just Vision's Suhad Babaa.

The presentation is sponsored by Emory's Center for Ethics, Office of the Dean of the Chapel and Religious Life, Department of Political Science, Department of Middle East and South Asian Studies.
