This week we’re joined by director Julia Bacha whose latest film My Neighbourhood (co-directed with Rebekah Wingert-Jabi), continues her work at Just Vision to document and assist the nonviolent movement to end the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. We discuss the importance of capturing and maintaining media attention when it comes to effectively changing situations on the ground.

Over the course of many examples throughout history we have seen that non-violent resistances have symbiotic relationships with media attention.
