When a nation-wide uprising breaks out in Palestine, a young woman in Gaza must make a choice between love, family, and freedom. Undaunted, she embraces all three, joining a clandestine network of women in a movement that forces the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time.

Naila and the Uprising chronicles the remarkable journey of Naila Ayesh and a fierce community of women at the frontlines, whose stories weave through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history – the First Intifada in the late 1980s.

Using evocative animation, intimate interviews, and exclusive archival footage, this film brings out of anonymity the courageous women activists who have remained on the margins of history — until now. While most images of the First Intifada paint an incomplete picture of stone-throwing young men front and center, this film tells the story that history overlooked – of an unbending, nonviolent women’s movement at the head of Palestine’s struggle for freedom.

What the critics say

‘100% Certified Fresh’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes

“An individual and collective remembrance … a portrait of both a truly remarkable woman and an entire generation of Palestinians with incredible courage” – Electronic Intifada

“It’s a painful story, but also an illuminating one … well worth watching.” – Hollywood Reporter

“A story that deserves more than 76 minutes, but this is a fascinating start.” – Seattle Times
