OUR EVENTS

Historical Documentary Panel at the International Documentary Association's Getting Real Conference

 Location: Los Angeles | CA     Screening Time: 1:45 - 3:15 pm

Just Vision's Creative Director, Julia Bacha, will speak alongside other filmmakers on the panel: "Not Your Grandmother's Historical Doc." Historical documentaries, long seen as fodder for classroom instruction and serious cinefiles, are having a moment. Recent films have landed at just the right time, providing historical context - and motivation - for solving today’s most pressing social issues. This panel of filmmakers and impact producers will discuss the challenges and successes of campaigns that centered on a variety of issues as examined through historical stories about sexual assault and the control of women's bodies, the battle to halt the AIDS epidemic, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the Black Panther Party, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Join us to hear lessons related to issue framing, promotional strategies and methods for creating impact that will demonstrate that historical documentaries can reach, inspire and engage diverse audiences beyond the classroom and niche film circles.

Recent events in Israel and the Palestinian territories have highlighted the paucity of information available to US and other audiences about a range of issues concerning this area of the world. Among the most important sources of information and public education about issues in Israel/Palestine are documentary films. Recently, many films about the Palestinian experience have been produced by Palestinian filmmakers. Join us for this rare opportunity to meet and discover work by Palestinian filmmakers, including filmmaker Emad Burnat (Five Broken Cameras), and producer Rula Salameh (Naila and the Uprising).
