Connexions Calendar

This is My Land

September 26, 2015

How do the Palestinian and Israeli (Arab and Jewish) education systems teach the history of their nations?

This Is My Land follows several Israeli and Palestinian teachers over one academic year in schools set in Jerusalem, Northern Israel, Nablus, Ramallah and a settlement. The film interweaves the stories of the teachers and their classes in parallel, revealing the different and sometimes opposing universes of the teachers and their schools. Through observing their exchanges and confrontations with students, debates with the ministries curriculum, and its restrictions, the viewers obtain an intimate glimpse into the profound and long lasting effect that the Israeli/Palestinian conflict transmits onto the next generation.
