Up To The South (Talaeen a Junuub)

Jayce Salloum and Walid Ra'ad

1993, 60:00 minutes, colour, Arabic, French, English


Talaeen a Junuub focuses specifically on South Lebanon, the current conditions, the people living there, the histories, politics & economics of the region, the Iraeli occupation and the social, ideological and popular resistance to this occupation. The tape also looks at notions of "the land", the culture, and the identities at stake. It examines these terms in relationship to the situation on the ground and their currency in the West, while engaging in a parallel critique of the documentary genre and its traditions.

Up To The South traite de la situation actuelle au Sud Liban, des gens qui y vivent, de l'histoire, de la politique et de l'occupation israélienne et des aspects sociaux, idéologiques et populaires de la résistance à cette occupation. En plus d'avoir tournépendant plus de 150 heures au Liban de janvier à décembre 1992, les auteurs ont recueilli une trentaine d'heures d'images vidéo et de films d'archives et ils ont obtenu la collaboration de plusieurs producteurs, chercheurs, historiens et journalistes de la région. Ils s'arrêtent à certains teremes en rapport avec la situation sur le terrain et avec leur utilisation en Occident: terroriste et terrorisme, occupation, colonisation, période post-coloniale, résistance, collaborateur, vérité et fiction.
