January 12, 2017 at 7:00pm – The Occupation of the American Mind (84 min, Loretta Alper and Jeremy Earp, 2016)
The Occupation of the American Mind focuses on American media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and how it is shaped by the US and Israeli governments and lobbying-groups in Israel’s favor. “The film traces the development of pro-Israel “hasbara” – or propaganda – efforts in the U.S. over the past four decades, ranging from government information campaigns devised after Israel’s invasion of Lebanon in the early 1980s to the specific media strategies implemented during Israel’s more recent bombardments of the Gaza Strip and throughout the occupation. The film is less about the details of the conflict than it is about how the conflict has been framed to the American people by U.S. news media and political leaders of both parties.” — – “The point of the [propaganda] effort is to make sure nobody questions U.S. support for Israel, and there’s no question it’s been amazingly effective. What we’re [the film’s producers] trying to do with this film is simply clear some space for rational and balanced discussion about the conflict and U.S. support for Israel.” [quotations from: mediaed.org/occupationmovie]
