IN THE IMAGE: PALESTINIAN WOMEN CAPTURE THE OCCUPATION, co-presented by the Berkeley FILM Foundation and featuring a post-film Q&A with filmmakers Judith Montell and Emmy Scharlatt (Doc Night)
In the Image: Palestinian Women Capture the Occupation focuses on the personal lives of several Palestinian women living in the West Bank. Partnering with the Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem the women emerge as citizen journalists, learning to use video as a non-violent means to capture human rights violations and daily life in their communities. Their videos are transmitted over checkpoints and borders and uploaded to YouTube by B'Tselem in Jerusalem. Some footage has gone viral and swayed public opinion and has been admitted as evidence in Israeli courts, resulting in the convictions of abusive soldiers and superiors. Salam, Ayatt and Nariman's lives are voiced from interviews, animation and vérité footage. Interviews with B'Tselem staff talk about the impact that the footage has had in the media and in the larger context of the Occupation.
Following the screening will be a post-film Q&A with the filmmakers Judith Montell and Emmy Scharlatt!
