Jaffa, the Orange's Clockwork

Loading...
The orange may not seem like the most obvious point of departure for an examination of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but during the last century, the disputed border area between Israel and the territories was one of the world' biggest exporters of this "orange gold." In "Jaffa, the orange's clockwork", director Eyal Sivan reconstructs how Jaffa started out as a Palestinian place name before becoming an Israeli brand name, and how the orange harvest shifted from a joint undertaking into a symbol used by both parties in the escalating conflict. The filmmaker uses a great deal of archive footage, from the very earliest photography in 1840 right up to crisp, modern video. The images are accompanied by commentary from a range of experts, who watch them projected on the walls of their [...]

Slingshot Hip Hop

Loading...
Hip hop has always had a school that attempts to voice frustrations about the African-American condition in the United States. That spirit of resistance animates the rappers profiled in this film: Palestinian hip hop groups DAM (from Lydd or Lod), PR (Gaza), along with young women Abeer (Lydd), and duo Arapeyat (Akka or Acre), who are also harassed for being independent females performing on stage. DAM formed as clueless teenagers, spent time spouting rap clichés, but in the wake of the second Intifada their lyrics became politicized--inspiring a hip hop movement across the Palestinian territories. These artists rap about friends killed in attacks, strafed buildings, rubble, fields stripped of every tree, and rage at separation walls and checkpoints. As Palestinian citizens living in [...]

To Die in Jerusalem

Loading...
"Ever since 17-year-old Rachel Levy, an Israeli, was killed four years ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber, her mother Avigail has found hardly a moment's peace. Levy's killer was Ayat al-Akhras, also 17, a schoolgirl from a Palestinian refugee camp several miles away. The two young women looked unbelievably alike. TO DIE IN JERUSALEM unabashedly explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through the personal loss of two families. The film's most revealing moment is in an emotionally charged meeting between the mothers of the girls, presenting the most current reflection of the conflict as seen thru their eyes." -- IMDb.

Beyond the Mirage: The Face of the Occupation

Loading...
David Neunuebel grew up in an average American home where the Middle East and Palestinian-Israeli were never part of the world. After his first visit to the area, he knew that something was terribly wrong. What he saw, after many more trips, went counter to every American instinct which he had been taught growing up. This documentary is an attempt to get "beyond the mirage." Too often, the conflict is presented in black and white terms. This, in itself, is a form of injustice. Here is an opportunity to hear from the people who actually live in the region, and it goes beyond what the American media presents. Featured are Jessica Montell, Director of B'Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Terratories; Jeff Halper of the Israeli Committee Against Home [...]

Hijacked

Loading...
On September 6, 1970, members of the militant Palestinian group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, hijacked four commercial airliners in order to draw attention to their cause and gain the release of their comrades being held in Swiss prisons. Three days later they commandeered a fifth plane, and, without killing any of the hostages, spectacularly blew up three of the planes at Dawson's Field in the Jordanian desert. Through interviews with militants who carried out the attack, journalists, crew members, and passengers, this production examines these events, and how and when Middle East militants began to see civilians as legitimate pawns in their struggles for self-determination.

Edward Said

Loading...
Edward Said discusses his postcolonial theory and how it applies to modern culture, from politics to literature. He exposes the Western image of the East as an artificial construct that is still retained today. He discusses Palestine as a politically expedient construct of Europe; argues the right of Palestine to exist as an independent, self-governing nation; and traces the origins of European attitudes toward the Arab world through the literature of E.M. Forster, T.S. Eliot, Joseph Conrad, and Chinua Achebe.
