Storyline

When a nation-wide uprising breaks out in 1987, a 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 whose story weaves through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history -- the First Intifada in the late 1980s.

Pro-terrorist movie
4 October 2019 | by tomerto-1See all my reviews

A morally repugnant film that glorifies a convicted terrorist Naila Ayesh, who took part in the incitement to violence in the "First Intifada" wave of terrorism. 100 Israeli civilians and 60 IDF personnel were murdered and more than 1,400 Israeli civilians and 1,700 soldiers were injured in the violence incited by Ms. Ayesh.
