|Alternative Media? Alternative Visions?: Independent Filmmaking and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict |
Danae Elon, Ted Saad and Harvey Stein
An interactive panel with Palestinian-American, Jewish-American, and Israeli independent filmmakers working on documentaries and fictional films that focus on Israel/Palestine and the tensions between Jews and Arabs.
Filmmakers will show excerpts from their films, and talk about the experience of making films that present alternatives to the limited images and information we get from mainstream media. How can independent film, TV, and video projects be used to build community, provoke dialogue and raise awareness?
