Saving NurThis 2016 documentary gives a unique perspective on the Palestinians of Gaza and the Israelis who help them. Nine-year-old Nur, a Palestinian girl afflicted with a rare genetic disease, must leave her home in the Gaza Strip to get medical help.  She needs a new liver, and her mother wants to donate hers in order to save Nur’s life.  The film shows how Israeli volunteers and medical experts help Nur and others like her, despite the security obstacles and their fear of potential terrorists within their borders.  This uplifting true story shows us the transformative power of humanity and hope. In Hebrew, Arabic and English with English subtitles.

67 minutes, followed by Q & A with CSUN Jewish Studies faculty.
