Route 181 : fragments of a journey to Palestine - Israël( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in Arabic and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 2002, Palestinian filmmaker Michel Khleifi and Israeli filmmaker Eyal Sivan embarked on a cinematographic journey through their country, Palestine-Israel. For this trip they traced a route on a road map. They called it "Route 181," after resolution 181 adopted by the UN in 1947. This resolution divided Palestine into two states, 56% of land for the Jewish minority, 43% for the Arab majority, and the rest, an international zone. This theoretical line presented as a solution caused the first Arab-Israeli war, which is yet to end. This journey along Route 181 followed this border, that has never existed

Aḥlām fī farāgh = Dreams and silence =( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in Arabic and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conveived as a parallel montage, Dreams and silence shows us the daily life of a Palestinian refugee living in Jordan, juxtaposing her life with with the discourse of a religious senator who belongs to a mystical school of thought. In doing so, the film identifies the contradictions between modern Islamic political thought and the day-to-day trial that this refugee woman faces--such as limited income, the need for education, and dashed hopes for national and personal liberation. While distancing itself from the obscurantist ideas of Islamic fundamentalism and from violence of the conflicts between the West and Islam, Dreams of silence defends a more human point-of-view, one that can pose the problems of the Middle East in a new light"--Container
