243 Broadway, Cambridge - corner of Broadway and Windsor, entrance on 

*Occuptation 101* is "a thought-provoking and powerful documentary film 
on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian 
conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict -- 
'Occupation 101' presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and 
hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many 
of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.

"The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the 
United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the 
way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are 
explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading 
Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders 
and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in 
American media outlets.

"The film covers a wide range of topics -- which include -- the first 
wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880's, the 1920 tensions, 
the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace 
Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, 
the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli 
withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from 
victims of this tragedy. "
