April 24 and 25 on Arte two documentary films by William Karel and Blanche Finger examine thehistory of israel, confronted with Israeli and Palestinian historians and writers. Two visions of history, the same land.
On May 14, 2018, the State of Israel will be 70 years old. Since the proclamation of the independence of the state of Hebrew in the spring of 1948, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been at the heart of global geopolitics. This news, through the emotion and controversy it arouses, ended up completely obscuring the story of the origins. And yet, who today really knows the chain of events that led to the creation of the State of Israel and the present situation?
By interweaving archival footage with the crossed perspectives of thirteen Israeli and Palestinian historians, academics and journalists, this two-part film tells the genesis of a conflict that still forms one of the great divides in the contemporary world today.
