Palestine Trilogy: documentations in history

b.h. Yael

2006, 75:00 minutes, colour, English, Hebrew & Arabic


All three videos (Deir Yassin Remembered, Even in the Desert, A Hot Sandfilled Wind) represent activists: Palestinians, Israelis and Internationals who work together in various groups and projects that attempt to address the historic and contemporary repercussions of Israel’s occupation and colonization of land. These are but a few of the many activists who work, and who are not often represented in mainstream media images of the conflicts in Israel and Palestine.

In these video works activists address the significance of the Nakba (the Palestinian disaster of 1948); they work at developing mutual relationships between Palestinians and Israelis; they provide a witnessing presence in sites of terror and displacement; they function as oppositional voices in Israel; and they provide small and sometimes only symbolic relief. Mostly they oppose the dominant myths that defend Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land and lives. They attest to the unjust reality of displacement, of walls, and of constant surveillance on families and indigenous communities. At the same time, mutual co-existence points to the possibilities of a different reality and a hope that the ‘sounds of peace’ may predominate.
