Come join Students for Justice in Palestine at UCLA with Pink Floyd founding member/activist Roger Waters and Sut Jhally, Executive Producer of "The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel's Public Relations War on the United States" for a film screening you won't want to miss!
Over the past few years, Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world- except in the United States. The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S.
Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. media culture, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel's favor. From the U.S.-based public relations campaigns that emerged in the 1980s to today, the film provides a sweeping analysis of Israel's decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people in the face of widening international condemnation of its increasingly right-wing policies.
The screening will be followed by a LIVE Q&A Session Featuring:
Executive producer Sut Jhally and Pink Floyd founding member/activist Roger Waters
