People And The Land

The Documentary Israel Tried to Block

"If you only see one movie about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, see People and the Land"

People and The Land airdrops viewers into the universe of an occupied people, unreeling images of a new form of apartheid based on ethnicity. Challenging U.S. foreign policy and the conventions of the documentary form itself, People and The Land examines the concrete realities of Israel's conduct in the West Bank and Gaza, the level of U.S. support for that conduct through foreign aid, and the human cost of that aid in Palestine and the U.S

Award-winning filmmaker Tom Hayes crosses borders and check-points to uncover the conflicting opinions and policies of the people who seem unwilling to share this land-and yet are unable to let go. Created at great personal risk by Tom Hayes and his crew. Zionists have lobbied to prevent PBS from showing the film. (VHS: 57 Minutes)

Read about the amazing story that took place during the filming of this PBS documentary and learn first-hand about censorship in modern day America. A gripping account as told by the films' producer Tom Hayes.

"People and the Land" (PDF file) by Tom Hayes; a 24 page article about how hard this film was to make, how Israel sought to make it illegal doing all they could to prevent the film.

It was made in 1997, but the occupation is always the same. The story alone if you take time to read it is amazing. You’ll really like the scenes where the Israelis say how to take care of the "problem". One American holds up a sign saying "transfer all the Arabs to Oklahoma where there’s oil" Isn’t that a good idea? One Israeli says "Take all the Arabs and put them in Arab countries and make one big Disneyland for them" One Israeli settler says, "As long as the Arabs are peaceful they can stay here". and more.

This film is EXCELLENT and I didn’t see anything in it that would make it outdated except maybe some of the specific names. Realy, realy good. I don’t know if PBS finally showed it but at the time of the article above they would not. It talks about the American attempt to censor the making too. You know it’s good if so many "nice" people didn’t want it to be seen at the time. It’s really nice of the doc makers to let the IOF have their say on how fair things are (yeah right) and then show the atrocities. [Robin]

The film was made in 1997 but the situation has not improved since then - today it is even worse.
