Open Bethlehem: Making Palestine Legible and Bethlehem Accessible


Towards the end of her new documentary Op150924-open-bethlehem-leila-sansour.jpgen Bethlehem (Palestine, 2014)filmmaker Leila Sansour discusses her aim to make Palestine “more important and palatable” to the White House and to US citizens. She stands outside the gated capitol of the United States, knowing that the future of her hometown of Bethlehem is directly connected with policies that are in some ways more significantly determined, not in Ramallah, but in Washington. Sansour’s ambition extends a long lineage of Palestinian documentaries that have appealed for broad international support since the Nakba of 1948. In December Palestine Link and Leila Sansour will host the launch of the film in the Netherlands.
