Arab World Social Innovator to be Showcased on CNN International
April 20, 2009
Yousef al-Deek, one of 22 Synergos Arab World Social Innovators, will be featured on CNN International. A special edition of CNN's The Screening Room will showcase the work of filmmakers who are documenting efforts to promote social justice and defend human rights in places from Afghanistan to Myanmar to the Netherlands.
Al-Deek is the founder of the Palestine Mobile Cinema Project, which brings films to communities in the Palestinian territories that have never enjoyed the cultural experience of cinema. CNN followed al-Deek and his volunteer crew as they traveled to the West Bank city of Jenin armed with a projector and screen to share the joy of cinema as an escape for the harsh realities of daily life.
