Dr. Samah Jabr about Beyond the Frontlines

« The film is brave because it does not claim to be «balanced» through positioning itself an equal distance from the occupier and the occupied of Palestine. Instead, it sheds light on the Palestinian experience and point of view : experiences and views which are usually silenced, distorted, or vilified by mainstream media. The film does not turn away from people who are labeled «controversial” and thus to be avoided and ignored. This film brings together a diversity of interviewees whose strong voices do not fade into an all-too-common passive submission to power and dominance. The interviewees differ ideologically among themselves yet a reunited in their striving for liberation. »
