Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land:
U.S. Media and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Nov 25

November 9, 2009

Cinema Politica presents: Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land: US Media and the Israeli-Palestinian ConflictTired of empty-headed entertainment? Then dust off those grey cells and head for Cinema Politica at Camosun.

Through the voices of scholars, media critics, peace activists, religious figures, and Middle East experts, this film provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

After you watch the film, you’ll get a chance to think and talk about it. Thom Bland from Camosun’s English department will lead the audience in a discussion that focuses on the nature of propaganda and the way the media has covered the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Cinema Politica continues through to May 2010. The public is welcome to attend and admission is by donation. Schedule with film and discussion details...

Camosun’s Cinema Politica is co-sponsored by Camosun’s School of Arts and Science, Students for a Democratic Society, and other student groups on campus.
