Join us for a special evening with the director and star of this award-winning documentary about an American teenager using social media to help coordinate the revolution in Syria.

After screening the film, we sit down with director Joe Piscatelli and star Ala’a, who joins us by Skype from her home in Chicago. We discuss the extraordinary role played by social media in political resistance movements, the on-going crisis in Syria, and hopes for the future.
