Are you asking:
- Why have the tensions in the Middle East continued for so long?
- Why do the various parties seem to have very different narratives of what's happening?
- What are the origins of the conflict?
- How can I get more information about Israel and Palestine?
- Where can I ask questions?
In a series of five programs, which we hope to make an annual offering, Witness Palestine aims to show the current conditions in Israel, the West Bank, and in Gaza. Our series includes both documentary and narrative films, which our film committee picked from about 50 considered in order to give you a view of the Middle East that you may not get from mainstream media.
Each program will be followed by a panel presentation and an opportunity for you to ask questions.Together, we hope these five programs will give you insight into the situation today.
We're at work to arrange encore screenings at area universities.
