2005 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Deb will travel to Israel and Palestine to interview Israeli refuseniks and Palestinian artists from the first Intifada to help her finish the screenplay for her feature film, “Poppies and Olives.” Her art and activism is based on her identity as a queer Jewish-American writer/artist who opposes the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip and will be shared through her film with queer political analysis, narratives that include Israeli military refusal, Palestinians in diaspora, and exposure to Palestinian art. Maria Govan, a screenwriter and film director, will work with Deb to discuss, read and critique her screenplay.
