Palestine in Documenta Madrid 2011


Palestine: Land and People in the 21st Century, a series hosted by the international documentary film festival Documenta Madrid 2011, provides an overview of the history of the region and the key factors to the Israeli occupation: military invasions into Palestinian refugee camps, the second Intifada, the struggle of women, Israeli society, the wall, Gaza and the reason behind the right to return. All these issues about a people and a land struggling to stay together. Produced between 2001 and 2010, these ten Palestinian documentaries reveal this reality. This series is set in this land and is made by its people: Mohammad Bakri and Juliano Mer Khamis from Haifa, Buthina Canaan Khoury and Liana Badr from Ramallah, Azza El-Hassan from Amman, Carol Mansour from Beirut, Rawan Damen from Doha, Omar Shargawi from Copenhagen and Edward Salem from Chicago.
