Description


With the upsurge in violence that came with the outbreak of the Second Intifada in the early 2000s, a new wave of documentaries emerged that centered on Palestinian and Mizrahim experiences of pain and oppression under Israeli occupation and the mainstream Israeli-dominated public realm.

This book explores how Palestinians and Mizrahim perform this entangled experience of oppression on screen. Analysing key documentary films from the era of the Second Intifada, Shirly Bahar offers a nuanced reading of the cinematic corpus emerging from Israel and Palestine, as well as the nature of Zionist policy over the lived experience of Palestinian and Mizrahim citizens of the Israeli state and its occupied territories.
