This past Wednesday my favorite radio show on Pacifica, Against The Grain, ran an interview with Juliano Mer Khamis, the director of one of the best documentaries to come out in recent years called Arna's Children. The film documents a group a young Palestinian children who live in the Jenin refugee camp (Palestine) coming of age under Israeli occupation.
There have been several excellent documentaries produced over the past few years shot from the perspective of Palestinians themselves, but this might be the best of them. For anyone needing a more in depth primer on the background of the Israel/Palestine "conflict" check out this resource produced by the group Jews for Justice in the Middle East.
