Up to the South explores the Israeli occupation of Southern Lebanon and the powerful resistance to this occupation. It also examines several popular discursive notions such as "the land," "culture," and "identity" in relation to both the East and the West.

Discussions on "terrorism," "occupation," "colonialism," "post-colonialism," "truth," "myths," and "martyrdom" provide an excellent opportunity for a parallel critique of the documentary genre as well as the West's production of information about the region.
