occupied minds: a candidate for the palestinian film festival we’re organizing in rochester. the film touches on many important issues, it’s personal and therefore easier to watch and access. it tries to be balanced (which can be a problematic word in the context of occupation but it’s not here). it lacks a cohesive narrative and doesn’t leave us with any cogent/urgent message but at the same time it manages to cover a wide spectrum of issues in one film w/o making it overwhelming. a great compliment to narrative films. 4 out of 5 for me.
