Broken: The International Court of Justice and Israeli-Palestine (A Work in Progress)
Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
When the International Court of Justice elevated the Israeli-Palestine conflict to a new level of visibility in 2004, many saw it as turning point in the history both of Palestine and of International Law. But will history turn? BROKEN is a filmmaker's journey across three continents, attempting to find answers.
Amahl Bishara is an anthropologist who looks at expression, space, media, and settler colonialism in Israel and the Occupied Territories. Through ethnographies of protest as well as of more everyday forms of expression, she looks at the barriers to how Palestinians and Israelis communicate.
