If we don't "go to the movies" in any form, our minds wither and sicken.
Our Far-Flung Correspondent Omer M. Muzaffer wrapped his series on how the conflict between Israel and Palestine has been reflected through cinema. As Muzaffer wrote in the introduction, "This series presents the situation in four installments. First, we will explore religious films. Second, we will survey attempts at good will and attempts at hostility. Third, we will explore Israel from the perspective of pro-Israeli filmmakers. Fourth, we will explore Palestine from the perspective of pro-Palestinian filmmakers." Find links to all four below:
Part 1: Introduction and Viewing List
Part 2: Friends and Foes
Part 3: Pro-Israeli Narratives
Part 4: Pro-Palestinian Narratives and Conclusions
