Film: Memory & Memorialization - Remembering the Nakba
The screening of two short videos and a moderated discussion explores the basis of memory and the human need to memorialize.
The narrative surrounding the Nakba in 1948 remains central to Palestinians and their supporters. Despite criminalization inside Israel's borders by the Nakba Draft Law (February 2010), the commemoration of the Nakba is a reality -- independent of laws and media.
For many the Nakba references a specific history, for others it provokes questions of memory and personal loss, of collective loss and finally, the loss of truth or recorded reality. The filmmakers will be in attendance.
