This multi-award winning film clarifies the fog of history that has enveloped the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It exposes the stark facts that gave rise to it and the continuing injustices that ensure it remains the world's longest running conflict.
Anyone interested in the background and current situation in Palestine will find this a most informative chronology of events. Commentary from people intimately involved in the region offers a clear insight to the real obstacles preventing the emergence of a just and lasting peace.

The hypocrisy of U.S.A. support for Israel is exposed. The tragedy for the people of the region is laid bare.

Following on from an excellent protest and challenging of the U.S. Ambassador by anti-war activists at his talk on U.S. foreign policy in nuig, we are asking all to attend the event, and encourage local activism.
