YANI INTIFADA


Directed by | Richard Mosse

Genre documentary  |  Length: 7mins  |  Year of production: 2005


Ya’ni Intifada explores meanings of the word Intifada not generally known in the west. We certainly hear the word almost daily on television news and in newspapers, but we rarely ask ourselves as to its precise meanings. Sure enough, intifada does mean “uprising”, but like many words in the Arabic language, it is also layered with other senses and connotations that can be quite removed from politics. Footage shot whilst driving between Gaza and the West Bank punctuates Mosse’s interviews conducted at Birzeit University near Ramallah during May 2005.
