200 days and Gaza is being exterminated. But it has not, and will not bow down .
In his provocative style, Godard says, "What is cinema? Nothing. What Does it want? Everything. What is it capable of? Something." While we agree with Godard that history has defeated cinema, we still hope that the seventh art can contribute to changing us in order to change the world. Based on this conviction and our hearts with Gaza, we started the quest for the "something" that Godard is talking about in Palestinian cinema and in the Cinemas of liberation and resistance.
We programmed this session we relied on an approach that differs from what we adopted in previous sessions because we aim to propose a picture that is faithful to Palestinian cinema and its rich and diversified history.
This is not to say that our program chronicles Palestinian cinema, but rather that it embeds the most important milestones of the past and present of Palestinian cinema and its context taking into account its different genres, approaches and forms. From resistance cinema with the Palestinian film Unit in the late 1960s after the Naksa, through films that documented the daily life of Palestinians, to contemporary documentary, narrative and experimental cinema that explores the self and identity. Because Palestine is a just cause of liberation that has attracted international solidarity, it seemed obvious to us to include a collection of films from the international cinematic library that dealt with the issue. Because the ugliness of colonialism is the same, we dedicated part of our programming to international films that address issues of colonialism and Western hegemony from a liberation perspective.
Our programming takes the form of a constellation, each star of whichderivesitscoherency from the relationships between the films, whether thematic or/ and , historical, or / and aesthetic.
