Combat Cinema: Women's Films in Palestine

17.02.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This dissertation examines contemporary Palestinian women filmmakers’ cinematic expressions. These films inscribe women’s narratives into the history of Palestine. They also tell their struggle on the one hand, for national self-determination, and on the other, for their own identity, both within the constraints of the Israeli occupation and vis-à-vis the Palestinian societal norms that sometimes impinge negatively on women.
