In the presence of the director

A document on the Palestinian cause which covers the period from the start of the 20th century to the mid-1970s and is unique in its genre. The few visual records upon which it relies are reflected in a well-crafted scenario which offers a historical reading and commentary that has been prepared, written and read by a 20th century Palestinian intellectual elite including the historian Emile Thomas, the poet Khaled Abu Khaled and many others. Rare international archives have also been used, resulting in a film which is unique in its genre, deemed an exceptional work, and absolutely essential for anyone who wants to understand the nature of the Palestinian cause, its developments and transformations.
