U.S. Premiere of the film "Enduring Roots: Over a Century of Resistance to the Jewish National Fund (JNF)" and a panel discussion about Greenwashing and its implications locally, in Palestine and worldwide.

In the name of environmentalism, the Jewish National Fund (JNF) plants trees and builds parks on Palestinian land. Over the past 113 years, the strategies of the JNF to acquire land in historic Palestine have changed, but its goals remain the same. This short film chronicles stories of Nakba survivors, interviews with their descendants about the case of refugee return, and current and growing resistance to the ongoing colonization of Palestine by the Jewish National Fund.
