A documentary film about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, followed by Q&A with Dr. Ahlam Muhtaseb, co-director/executive producer and CSUSB communication studies professor.

Through riveting and moving personal recollections of both Palestinians and Israelis, this film reveals the shocking events of the most pivotal year in the most controversial conflict in the world. It tells the story of the establishment of Israel as seen through the eyes of the people who lived it. It is simply not possible to make sense of what is happening in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today without an understanding of 1948. This documentary was the last chance for many of its Israeli and Palestinian characters to narrate their first-hand accounts of the creation of a state and the expulsion of a nation.
