Tragedy in the Holy Land: the Second Uprising (Denis Mueler, Documentary, 2002, 71 minutes)
Tragedy in the Holy Land fills a void in conventional accounts of the Israeli/Palestinian struggle. It gives the viewer access to the voices and background of one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted conflicts of the last century. This provocative documentary addresses the core issues of land and identity. It probes the evolution of the seemingly incurable conflict in Palestine from a historical perspective that is typically unknown to American audiences. Using rarely seen archival footage and interviews with various experts and scholars, Tragedy in the Holy Land offers vital information about the roots of the current conflict and the ongoing struggle for survival and dignity.

Jenin Jenin (Mohamed Bakri, Palestine, Documentary, 2002, 50 minutes)
A few days after the Israeli invasion of the Jenin refugee camp, a camera crew shot at the site, documenting testimonies of Jenin residents. The IDF's operation ended with Jenin flattened and scores of Palestinians dead. Jenin Jenin shows the extent to which the prolonged oppression and terror has affected the state of mind of Palestinians. The sad question forces itself on the spectator: what will become of a country, a people, when its children are confronted with war and violence from a very early age?
