OCCUPATION 101 is a thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict -- 'Occupation 101' presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.The film covers a wide range of topics -- which include -- the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880's, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy. Occupation 101 features a leading list of some of the most credible Middle East scholars, historians, peace activists, journalists, and humanitarian workers.



ABDALLAH OMEISH is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and director. Slated to be one of the most influential and controversial documentary filmmakers of his generation, Omeish's debut documentary film Occupation 101 illustrated the young filmmaker's power to bulldoze down centuries of injustice and marginalized portrayals to establish a new arena for oppressed voices to be heard. Occupation 101, has to date won a total of nine awards both domestically and internationally.  


ALISON WEIR is the executive director of If Americans Knew, a nonprofit organization she founded following an independent investigation as a freelance journalist at the height of the second intifada in 2001 to flash points in the West Bank and Gaza rarely visited by American journalists. Her articles have been included in a number of anthologies; she is a contributor to the Washington Report for Middle East Affairs, CounterPunch, The Link, and other publications. Weir has lectured at Harvard Law School, Yale, Stanford, Berkeley, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, the Naval Postgraduate Institute, Georgetown, and numerous other campuses and other venues.
