On April 4, 2011, militant artist Juliano Mer-Khamis was assassinated in front of the Freedom Theatre which he founded in the Jenin Refugee Camp. Art/Violence follows two of his students from Jenin as they redefine their identity as artists and women after his death. Facing military occupation and societal oppression, they surround themselves with a group of young and radical Palestinian artists armed with fidelity to art, sisterhood and Palestine.
