Out of the Archive: A Case Study from Mandate Palestine
Sunday 9th December, 2012, at 13:00
Watershed, Bristol, BS1 5TX
Dr Francis Gooding presents Out of the Archive – A Case Study from Mandate Palestine with rare British archive footage from the 1940s, the end of the British Mandate era in Palestine, including Portrait of Palestine (1947 16mins). Described by Francis as a ‘standard piece of propaganda’ he unpicks the motivations behind the making of the film, and asks why the British decided to make such a film just two months before ‘responsibility’ for Palestine was handed to the UN.
