UK Premiere 

Maia, a bright American student, is asked, along six fellow students, to watch 40 web videos which depict life under occupation in Palestine – half of them posted by human rights organisation B’Tselem, the rest by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit and other pro-Israeli organisations. Six months later she is back in the viewing booth – this time to watch herself watching the videos the first time around. The daughter of Israeli parents, Maia has a great love for Israel and a reluctance to admit its wrongdoing. Could exposure to disturbing footage change her point of view on the country she is so attached to, and the conflict? More than a film, Israeli political filmmaker Ra’anan Alexandrowicz’s latest piece, which premiered at Berlinale this year, is an intriguing social experiment that asks to what extent images can form our core beliefs – or to radically alter them.

Film followed by a live Q&A with Ra’anan Alexandrowicz and Maia Levi. 

This film is available to watch until 7:30pm, Friday 20th November.
