Open Bethlehem film showing

Story: Carrie Hedderwick

Christchurch hosted Leila Sansour’s film Open Bethlehem on 12th March, supported by the Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

The film intends to generate international support for the ‘Tourism Project’ which aims to revitalise Bethlehem as a modern city.

Organisers have sent delegations all over the world to involve people of all faiths and none with the project – Jewish communities, Anglican bishops, social justice campaigners, progressive politicians and ordinary folk.

The film won lots of support at Christchurch. Further information on the project is at, or contact the Palestine Solidarity Campaign at
