This Week 'Cinema Libre' presents an evening exploring the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. We encourage all those with something to say on the issue to please come down and share your thoughts with other so we can inspire each other to do something more. there is no entrace fee
A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and US government involvement. 'Occupation 101' presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never-ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.
The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. Unlike any other film produced on the conflict, 'Occupation 101' explains the complicated reality with precision storytelling through a series of highly stylized visual edits, and gives audiences a complete context with which to better understand the Israeli-Palestinian debate.
The roots of the conflict are explained with thought-provoking commentaries from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.
