Lebanese/Canadian artist Jayce Salloum and Elia Suleiman, a Palestinian filmmaker living in New York, have taken on our accumulated (mis)impressions of the Palestinian Intifada by tracing their genesis in film and television.

This highly kinetic tableaux of uprooted sights and sounds works most earnestly to expose the racial biases concealed in familiar images. Relying on valuable snippets from feature films such as Exodus, Lawrence of Arabia, Black Sunday, Little Drummer Girl and network news shows, the filmmakers have constructed an oddly wry narrative mimicking the history of Mid East politics.

This film is available with a Digital Site License (DSL), which allows colleges, universities, or libraries to encode, locally host, and stream the film to their community on a closed, password-protected system.
