Palestine Solidarity: The Film Critics’ Blind Spot

June 30, 2015 – The Palestine Center, Washington, DC

Watch film scholar Terri Ginsberg discuss Palestine-solidarity filmmaking, focusing predominantly on To Live in Freedom, a 1974 documentary directed by Simon Louvish, and featuring Palestinian writer and intellectual Fouzi El-Asmar. The talk examines the relationship between Zionism, European colonialism, class stratification and racism in Palestine/Israel, and suggests historical ties between the establishment of the film studies discipline during the 1960s, and U.S. government interference in the socio-cultural sphere.
