(2003, DCP, 85m, Palestine/Israel, Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles) dir Michel Khleifi and Eyal Sivan. Documentary feature (in three parts). In the summer of 2002, for two long months, Eyal Sivan and Michel Khleifi traveled together from the south to the north of their country of birth; they traced their trajectory on a map and called it Route 181. This virtual line follows the borders outlined in Resolution 181, which was adopted by the United Nations on November 29, 1947 to partition Palestine into two states. The film is a three-part documentary, and this month’s screening is the first part. 

The South: From Ashdod to Gaza. The first part of ROUTE 181 begins in Ashdod, on the seaside at a construction site. The filmmakers talk to an Israeli foreman as well as Chinese and Palestinian workers and surveyers. Sivan and Khleifi begin their cinematic journey this way, through the southern parts of Palestine-Israel, interviewing a juice seller, a candy seller, an engineer, and a manager, gaining perspectives from Israelis and Palestinians about everyday life. They visit a Kibbutz, they travel to Gaza, and they hear residents understandings of the Zionist project alongside discussions of Palestinians right to return. Their task as filmmakers is to document, to convey what is desired and what is experienced, to distinguish people’s dreams from political projects, to hear what one wants to forget, and to listen to the other––this is how the journey begins. Each film will also be available to view online at mizna.eventive.org/welcome. 7:00 $10
