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.

Review

"A Visual Revolution is Born!... If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Occupation 101 is worth a thousand books." --In Focus

"The film that wins the 'Golden Palm Award' is a film that not only reflects mastery of the filmmaking arts, but of storytelling and humanity. The winner, in short, is the film that grabs us by body and mind, and never lets go." --Nino Simone, President of the International Beverly Hills Film Festival

"A passionate, heart-rending and alarming chronicle of the Palestinian legacy... a keenly observed, illuminating clarion call for truth in media and human rights justice." --Movie Magazine International

Customer Reviews

I highly recommend this DVD even to the pro Israeli lobby!
Ahmed Z. Shraim
It is devastatingly eye-opening in its portrayal of the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, who are being brutalized by oppression.
Dawn
This is an extremely emotional topic for many people, and the filmmakers and producers did a tremendous job to be objective.

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 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?????

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 long overdue and should be a mandatory item in schools. It dispels the propaganda campaign that the pro-Israeli lobby has been so successful in creating since its military conquering of Palestine in 1947-1948. There is a great myth about how Palestine was an empty land before the recent flood of Jewish immigrants flocked to its shores. So how does one explain the 750,000 Palestinians forced to flee for their lives when the Jewish militias started destroying Palestinian villages?

Let the world hear the truth for once without all the filters of the Jewish-Israeli Lobby, then judge for them selves as to the who the real war criminals are. Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela have themselves said the Palestinians face a situation far worse than the black South Africans did under the racist white Apartheid system. Also, read Israeli historian, Illan Pappe's account in his latest book "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" if you wish to know the facts of the creation of Israel and the simultaneous destruction of Palestine. Please see this film and read Illan Pappe' book...
