BEYOND THE FRONTLINES: TALES OF RESISTANCE AND RESILIENCE FROM PALESTINE, Alexandra Dols, 2017, France, 1h 54 min
Beyond the Frontlines takes us on a journey both within our own minds and on the roads of Palestine, led by Palestinian psychiatrist and writer Dr. Samah Jabr.
An heir to anticolonial psychiatrist Dr. Frantz Fanon, she exposes the psychological strategies and consequences of Israeli occupation, and the ways in which Palestinians have learned to cope. In this multi-voiced movie, interviews and chronicles are intertwined together with poetic escapes suggesting the invisible dimension of Palestinian streets and landscapes. From this fragmented Palestine, women and men share their stories of resistance and resilience.
For everyday colonization does not only involve occupying land, homes, the sky or water. It does not seek to impose its rule through weapons only; it molds the minds as well, beyond the frontlines…
Alexandra Dols is a writer, director and producer. She graduated in cinematography from Paris University, where she specialized in scriptwriting and directing.
