Q and A following the film with MECA staff Ziad Abbas, Barbara Lubin, and Nadia Barhoum

Seventeen-year-old Leila Sarsour is a strong, intelligent and outspoken young woman who studies at the Al-Qurtuba [Cordoba] School, a Palestinian high school for girls in the West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil in Arabic). The school is surrounded by Israeli military installations and settlements populated by right-wing Jewish religious fundamentalists. "Welcome to Hebron" depicts everyday life for Palestinians attempting to lead normal lives in this volatile city surrounded by checkpoints and barbed wired. Directed by award-winning Swedish documentarian Terje Carlsson.
