In the 1970s, filmmakers Masao Adachi and Jean-Luc Godard each created a sophisticated essay film that used the Palestinian revolution to reflect questions of truth, representation, media circuits and the relationships that can and cannot be formed through them. This talk shifts attention away from these well-known works to focus  on the films Palestinians themselves were making at this time, exploring how they engaged differently with the ideas that animated Adachi and Godard, as well as those articulated in the third cinema texts of Latin American filmmakers.

Nadia Yaqub (PhD University of California, Berkeley, 1999), is professor of Arabic language and culture in the department of Asian studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

She also coedited Bad Girls of the World (University of Texas Press 2017) with Rula Quawas.
