Product Description

MOVIE SYNOPSIS:

A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and US political involvement. 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.

Format: DVD
I was not ignorant of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I have heard personal testimonies from friends, I have studied it in college, I have read on the issue. But after watching this film, to say I really knew much of anything is an overstatement. This film made me want to cry, to vomit, and to be very angry. But it also made me want to ask others to watch it. The atrocities that have been committed, and continue to be committed against the Palestinian people are unspeakable. That these acts have been committed in our (as citizens of the U.S.) name, and extensively funded our government -- are things we should be simultaneously outraged by and ashamed of. I believe everyone needs to watch this film. Bias is not the point nor the intention of this film, its intention is to document the sufferings of an entire group of people. Anyone who watches this should be able to come to their own conclusions. And anyone who watches this, who believes in any sort of human rights, if you do nothing else -- share it with other people. This story needs to be told, and be made visible.

This is the sort of information Americans need to understand what actually has happened and is happening in Palestine/Israel. Certain political and often religious forces present false information or deprive most people of extant information for purposes of their own. We are led to support extreme, suppressive, deadly endeavors by an occupying force. That should always be contrary to American preferences.

The interviews and testimonials were compelling, and more importantly, balanced. This DVD does not bias towards one side over the other. This is an extremely emotional topic for many people, and the filmmakers and producers did a tremendous job to be objective. The list of interviewees is impressive, as are their credentials. You can see why this film took over five years to complete. After watching the DVD, it will give you a better perspective on how this conflict is portrayed in the US media versus what is actually happening on the ground in the Palestinian territories. There are heart-wrenching scenes about the human tragedy unfolding to everyday people. The editing is superb and the 1 1/2 hours went by quickly. Anyone who regards themselves as fair-minded should watch this DVD.

This film is a must-watch for all Americans with a conscience. It is devastatingly eye-opening in its portrayal of the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, who are being brutalized by oppression. This may serve as future historical documentation of the sad events unfolding in the Middle East. Our children and their children and so on might some day look to this film for answers to the big question: "Why are they still fighting?" THANK GOD this film was made.

This is by far the best documentary to detail the history of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. No B/S just facts and testimonies from experts and political activists. Whether you are an expert on the Middle East or just heard about it today, this DVD will paint a very clear picture and show you the other side of the story! The Palestinian side and even through some Israelis' words, which is very rarely seen in the US. I highly recommend this DVD even to the pro Israeli lobby! I dare you to watch it with an open mind and for once ask your self this question; What if the Palestinians weren't the ones who started this whole conflict after all?????

Great film that exposes the Israeli apartheid policies and human rights violations. America needs to wake up and realize the truth about the conflict. Please help spread the news and secure justice for all.
