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.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
