The Wall Must Fall: Memory Activism, Documentary Filmmaking and the Second Intifada

Tamar Katriel, Yifat Gutman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The violent conflict over the Occupied Palestinian Territories has gripped world attention for decades. In recent years, the daunting image of the Separation Barrier [hence, the Wall] built by Israel, mostly on Palestinian lands, and which combines a wall, a fence and other impediments to free passage along its route (Dolphin, 2006), has stood out as an icon of enforced separation between Israelis and Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). At the same time, the nonviolent struggle against the building of the Wall, and the occupation regime more generally, launched by the Palestinians during the second Intifada (uprising) in the early 2000s, has been largely overlooked by Israeli and international mainstream media.
