16 april, Amsterdam: documentaire Occupation of the American Mind
In cinema of the Dam’d , Overtoom 301
Van 19:00 tot 21:00 uur
georganiseerd door FFIPP Netherlands
The widespread controversy surrounding US congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s criticism of the influence of the lobby-group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on policy-makers in the United States has sparked a big debate in the U.S.
In light of these events, FFIPP Netherlands is hosting a screening of the film “The Occupation of the American Mind”. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the film explores how the Israeli government, the US government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives and interests, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor.
After the film, we invite attendees to engage in a discussion about the film and the controversy surrounding it in the bar.
