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 [...]
