1913: Seeds of Conflict

Production of 60-minute television documentary exploring Israeli-Palestinian relations in the years before World War I when the Ottoman Empire was crumbling.

This is a request for a grant to produce a 60-minute documentary film that examines a pivotal yet largely overlooked moment in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: the years just prior to World War I. 1913: Seeds of Conflict looks at a moment of transformation when Ottoman rule in Palestine was entrenched, the personal identities of people living there were fluid and overlapping, and few could imagine the conflict that would come to dominate the region for most of the next century.
