À propos du film

DEIR YASSIN REMEMBERED considers the repercussions of a largely forgotten massacre of almost 100 Palestinians in 1948. The massacre at Deir Yassin was pivotal to Palestinian dispossession. Though Deir Yassin has been partially acknowledged by Israelis, many other massacres of the time have not. The video not only gives an account of what happened at Deir Yassin, but also argues for the need for acknowledgement and commemoration.

DEIR YASSIN REMEMBERED is one of three videos in a series titled Palestine Trilogy that present Palestinian, Israeli and international activists who work together in various groups and projects that attempt to address the historic and contemporary repercussions of Israel’s occupation and colonization of land.
