Shalal. A Reel War

SHALAL. A Reel War

While researching footage for a documentary, an Israeli archive researcher comes across a few tapes titled “Loot.” Why are they there? To whom do they belong?

In 1982, The Israeli army invaded Beirut. A film archive of  the PLO’s filming unit, containing hundreds of hours of raw materials, disappeared.

“SHALAL” is a story of a lost Palestinian film archive, delving into three historical events captured in the footage. It is the story of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict—from a new viewpoint. The real war is a reel war, fought not with firepower but with access to historical records and visual archives.
