GENINT 741.383 - The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Through Film
In this course, we view significant movies about the Middle East to explore the historical, social and political issues at stake in the region. From epic dramas like Exodus to award winning documentaries like Waltz with Bashir, we examine how films have both shaped and reflected the multiplicities of stories about Israel and the Palestinian Territories. Every film opens up a window into a part of the world that is fraught with conflict and helps us better imagine how peace in the region may come about. Each session begins with a brief introduction to the film before the screening, followed by lively discussion. Suggested reading is Side by Side: Parallel Histories of Israel-Palestine, edited by Sami Adwan, Dan Bar-On, and Eyal Naveh.
