A memorial screening of Jeremy Hardy vs the Israeli Army
 

Tuesday  23 Jul 2019 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Earlier this year, we lost the wonderful, funny and brave Jeremy Hardy.

Acclaimed stand-up comedian and passionate campaigner for human rights, this event will honour and remember Jeremy’s unstinting support for Palestine and the Palestinian people.

Jeremy Hardy versus the Israeli Army follows Jeremy’s journey to Palestine, at the invitation of filmmaker Leila Sansour, who challenges him to join the International Solidarity Movement during the 2002 Israeli invasion.

Mark Thomas, fellow stand-up comedian and author of Extreme Rambling: Walking Israel’s Separation Barrier. For Fun, will host the evening

There will be a panel discussion after the screening with Jeremy’s wife, film maker Katie Barlow; Leila Sansour, producer/director of Jeremy Hardy versus the Israeli Army; Aimee Shalan, CEO of MAP; Chris Dunham, ISM activist and managing director of Carbon Descent; and Jocelyn Hurndall, mother of young British photojournalist, Tom Hurndall, who was killed by the Israeli Army while reporting on the ISM in 2003.
