Commemorating the Legacy of Slain Arab-Jewish Actor Juliano Mer-Khamis

Art/Violence, a film about the late Mer-Khamis who was murdered in 2011, portrays how a dream can keep on living if its bearer succeeded in planting it in the right hearts.

Juliano Mer-Khamis, actor, director, teacher and political activist, was murdered on April 4, 2011. A masked man shot him five times at close range near the Freedom Theatre in Jenin, which Mer-Jhamis had founded in 2006. The murderer was never captured and the motives for the killing remain unknown.
