Gaza in Context

Film Details: 
Documentary, 20 minutes
Film Description: 

This teaching film combines lecture, animation, typography, and footage from Palestine to upend the ahistorical narrative that has cast the Gaza Strip as a national security issue. By emphasizing the role of Hamas and diminishing the question of Palestine, Israel has collapsed conditions in Gaza with asymmetric conflicts, or what has come to be known as the “global war on terror.” Gaza in Context is an attempt to re-frame the issue to place greater emphasis on the broader question of Palestine and to explain Israel’s policy toward the Gaza Strip in a settler-colonial framework.
