Resistance, Why
Dir. Christian Ghazi, 1971
56’, Lebanon
EN with AR subtitles

In 1970, at the initiative of Soraya Antonius (Fifth of July Society), Christian Ghazi and Noureddine Chatti met with a number of Arab political figures, especially Palestinians residing in Lebanon. 


In the documentary produced, Ghassan Kanafani, Sadiq Jalal El-Azm, Nabil Shaath and other personalities share their vision of the Palestinian revolution, tracing its history back to the early 20th century. These testimonies describe the numerous strikes and popular protests that took place in Palestine under the Ottoman occupation, followed by the British colonization and the settlement of the Jewish state in 1948. They enumerate the objectives of the struggle, emphasising the necessity for a free and democratic Palestine, defended through armed or non-armed struggle by all its citizens, men and women of various affiliations. 

Resistance, Why? is a documentary produced in English –and thus destined to an international public– calling for openness, justice, the right to auto-determination, and for the Palestinian people to fight against occupation, zionism and imperialism.
