MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE

“And what would I write about if I only stayed within the doll’s house, the flower-world I grew up in?”

When a young writer’s growing knowledge of world events leads her to nonviolent activism and human rights observation in the Gaza Strip, she witnesses first hand the personal experiences of the people behind the news headlines. 

Taken from the intense and poetic journals of Rachel Corrie, adapted by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner, My Name is Rachel Corrie boldly poses the question: What do we owe to the rest of humanity?
