OCCUPATION 101 - Voices of the Silenced Majority
Film showing April 25, 7:00pm, Olney Hall, College of Marin, Kentfield
This powerful documentary film has won 8 film awards, including the 'Golden Palm', Best Picture Award at the Beverly Hills Film Festival. It shows the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and U.S. involvement. Unlike any other film produced on the conflict - 'Occupation 101' presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions. It discusses the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. First-hand on-the-ground experiences are given from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media.
Questions and Answers will be held after the film showing.
