A History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict Through the Lens of Israeli Films

5:00 pm

The Sue and Leonard Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies, along with the School of Communication and UM Hillel, presents Professor Pablo Utin, Schusterman Visiting Artist Fellow, who will lecture on “A History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict Through the Lens of Israeli Films” on Tuesday, November 9 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Miller Center Auditorium, 105 Merrick Building, Coral Gables campus. RSVP at [email protected], call 305-284-6882, or fax 305-284-5274. Free and open to the public. Seating is limited.

The Arab-Israeli conflict has always been one of the main topics in Israeli films. Starting with examples from pre-state Zionist feature films, this lecture will analyze the representation of the conflict between Jews and Arabs as portrayed through the lenses of Jewish-Israeli filmmakers. After a short survey of the development of the conflict and its cinematic representation in the past, the lecture will then focus on more recent Israeli films dealing with this conflict. These films, which are products of the social psychology generated by the politics of disengagement, are also outstanding cinematic works of art. The lecture will try to portray the relationship between the social and the artistic aspects of this reality. The lecture will include the screening of clips from prominent Israeli films.
