"Occupation 101" is a thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict, it 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. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have often been suppressed in American media outlets.
The film covers a wide range of topics: the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880's, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart-wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.
This film is co-sponsored by the NE American Friends Service Committee, United for Justice with Peace, Arlington United for Justice with Peace, Lexington Justice with Peace Committee, Waltham Concerned Citizens, and Weston
Dialogues for Peace and Justice.
