A snapshot of the lives of three women living in Nabi Saleh, Palestine, a small village in area C of the West Bank in which infrastructure is controlled by Israeli government, impacting access to school, work, and medical services. Since being denied a vital water source in 2009, the women have become prominent activists in weekly demonstrations, fighting for their rights as Palestinians.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
