IdentiferProgram Lebanon Series 5
DescriptionAna Nogueira tells the horrendous and hopeful story of Israel's effort to crush the Hezbolla organization by destroying much of the infrastructure of Lebanon and terrorizing its people. Israel has become well known for its use of collective punishment to achieve its political and military objectives. Nogueira's film shows their massive use of cluster bombs, the destruction of oil tanks that fouled the water and beaches and the cruel results of bombs directed at civilian targets. Though the frustration and anger of the Lebanese people, however, comes a sense of defiance and hope, a steadfast determination not only to endure but to triumph.
