About the film:

Palestine Under Siege takes you into the heart of the struggle for Palestinian self-determination. Survivors of Al Nakba along with Palestinian and Jewish activists, share their experiences and insights of living under Israeli apartheid.

Three Australians, Dr Peter Slezak, Rand Darwish and former Senator Lee Rhiannon, travelled to Palestine to conduct interviews and investigate Israel’s accelerating colonisation of Palestinian land.

This documentary was filmed and edited by Australian filmmakers, John Reynolds and Jill Hickson.

Dare to Struggle Film projects partnered with Wattan TV; a secular Palestinian television service operating in the West Bank and the Hebron Human Rights Defenders to produce this film. The project was also supported by “Defence for Children International – Palestine”.

“Israel is destroying Palestine. This documentary shows why we should not stand by and watch” — Julian Burnside
