The Israeli and Palestinian film scenes are currently in the midst of a creative and commercial boom. The Palestinian film "Paradise Now" (2005) won the Golden Globes award; the Israel film "Beaufort" (2007) recently won an Oscar nomination for the best foreign film and "Sweet Mud" (2006) received the Sundance Festival international award.

The course will investigate Israeli cinema vis-à-vis Palestinian cinema, both as national cinemas, from the perspective of postcolonial discourse. It will focus on the way each represents its national space, or land, in national cinematic allegories.

Contemporary Palestinian and Israeli films will be screened and discussed. Among them are:

  • "Beaufort" (Israel 2007)
  • "Sweet Mud" (Israel 2006)
  • "Paradise Now" (Israel-Palestine 2005)
  • "Broken Wings" (Israel 2002)
  • "Thirst" (Israel-Palestine 2004)
