[SDCPJ] Saturday April 27 Portraits of Desire & Denial by John Halaka

Portraits of Desire & Denial by John Halaka
Saturday April 27, 6:00 PM
at Al-Awda Center, 2720 Loker Avenue West Suite J, Carlsbad CA 92010

Palestinian refugees have become the forgotten survivors of the world. Their
experiences in exile have been deliberately ignored and their voices
repeatedly silenced over the course of a forced and ongoing odyssey that
started over 65 years ago. The majority of the refugees exist, unseen and
unheard, in the margins of marginalized communities.

John Halaka is a visual artist, documentary film maker and professor of
Visual Arts at the University of San Diego. He will discuss his project
*Portraits of Desire & Denial,* a multidisciplinary art project that
attempts to make images of the refugees indelible, and their personal
experiences in exile unforgettable. He will show clips from interviews he
conducted with Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

This event is free and open to all. Our center is wheel-chair accessible.
