A showing of the play, "How to Make a Revolution" by playwright Einat Weizman and Human Rights Defender Issa Amro. This documentary play details the trial of Issa Amro in Israeli military court.
“You can’t document what happens in the military courts – you can’t take videos or pictures, no recordings at all. Much of what happens there stays in the dark – unless someone takes the official testimonies and makes them into a play.”
In this new documentary play, Einat Weizman draws on transcripts from Issa’s trial at the notorious Ofer military court where the conviction rate for Palestinians is a staggering 99.7%, and the judges and prosecutors are all on the side of the occupying powerstate. There are no juries in Israel’s military courts: the sentence has been passed before the trial has begun, and the prisoner knows how this will end before the guard has called his name.
