Overview

The concept of ‘national’ cinema has increasingly been questioned across contemporary scholarship in a globalized era and the focus has shifted towards the concept of ‘transnational’ instead. When it comes to Palestinian cinema, a true transnational cinema, it is often referred to as ‘Palestinian Cinema’ and for instance Palestinian films have been recognized and nominated for the Academy Awards Oscars.

It can be argued that this cinema better than any peace talk or political negotiation actually addresses and problematizes the conflict. Hani Abu-Assad, one the greatest Palestinian directors, articulated that the shared Palestinian experience is what binds Palestinian films together.

This lecture will look at how this experience has been depicted in films to create a ‘national’ cinema. Lecture: TransNational Cinema: the Case of Palestinian Cinema (Maryam Ghorbankarimi) Film: Wajib (AnnMarie Jacir)
