Chronicles of a Refugee: 2008
DescriptionChronicles Of A Refugee is a 6-part documentary series that looks at the Palestinian refugee experience over the last 60 years in its global context. The first three episodes recount the experiences of Palestinian refugees since 1947 in their own voices. The refugees take us from "Al-Nakba' (the catastrophe) in 1948 (Part I) through the repeated expulsions of Palestinians from, and by, host countries (Part II) to the various legal, social and political discrimination Palestinian refugees continue to experience (Part III). The last three episodes raise three main issues facing contemporary Palestinian refugees. The intended goal here is to open up debates revolving around Palestinian identity (Part IV); the Right of Return (Part V); and the problem of political representation (Part VI).
