  2. A documentary created by former Merrill College student Samia Badih ('08) as part of her Carnegie Seminar Practicum. "My nine-minute documentary tells the story of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, their civil and human rights and current living conditions. They are the sons and daughters of those who fled their homes almost 60 years ago in 1948. Today they live in refugee camps across Lebanon and their refugee status is passed on from father to child."

  3. Based on one of the 1001 Arabian Nights, this was a small clip I made for my Orientalism class.

    In the story, all sorts of crazy stuff happens, and then Zobeide slays a dragon by tossing a stone, thus rescuing a smaller dragon.

    This is the smaller dragon.

  4. “Farewell my library! Farewell mansion of wisdom, temple of philosophers, institute of science, council house of literature!” ~ Khalil al-Sakakini

    Chronicles of a cultural destruction: the story of 70,000 "collected" Palestinian books during the 1948 war by the newly born State of Israel.

    The film employs a multifaceted approach to tell a multi-layered story: dramatic location filming, eyewitness accounts, archival footage, pictorial material, C.G.I.—computer generated images, documents and culture critiques.

    We continue to seek eye witnesses to, and pictorial material, of the plunder affair.
