Over the last quarter-century, Palestinian cinema has emerged as a major artistic force on the global scene. Deeply rooted in the historic struggles for national self-determination, this cinema is the single most important artistic expression of a much-maligned people. In Dreams of a Nation, filmmakers, critics and scholars discuss the extraordinary social and artistic significance of Palestinian film. It is the only volume of its kind in any language. With contributions by Bashir Abu-Manneh, Nizar Hassan, Annemarie Jacir, Michel Khleifi, Joseph Massad, Hamid Naficy, Kamran Rastegar, Ella Shohat, Omar al-Qattan, and Taoufiq bin Amor. Preface by Edward Said.
