Entangled (2007), a film by Amir Har-Gil, documents the personal stories of six individuals whose lives are interwoven in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. All six are moderate, ordinary people that are drawn into the conflict despite their peaceful attitudes. In contradiction to the film’s aim to document a specific moment, it became apparent that the personal stories are integrates also in the history of the conflict. Therefore, the stories appeared as a part of diachronic and synchronic occurrences. The chapter analyses the documentary through three theoretical perspectives: culture and memory, nationalism, and cinematic documentation. We argue that participants in the conflict, as liberal as they may be, are captured in negative stigmas which have been told to generations of local civilians. Hence, the common victim-oppressor interpretation is reinforced by a mental lock in an historic framework, which is perpetually reproduced. Moreover, the protagonists show higher affiliation with their nationality, rather than identification with the wish for peace. Consequently, we argue that the national collective memory role is more significant than the yearning for peace. Nevertheless, some of the participants in the film exposed high identification with the other party, be it the oppressor or the oppressed. In this sense, they revealed that a dialog of sorts exists even at times of political stand still

Abstract

Inasmuch as the 2015 Israeli elections brought to power a Netanyahu-led coalition even more ideologically opposed to the creation of a Palestinian state than the previous coalitions, the absence of political will to reach agreement would appear to prejudge the outcome of any future negotiations should they take place. For this reason, recommendations to improve American mediation efforts remain in the realm of theory, but nevertheless may provide useful suggestions for the more basic step of returning the sides to serious negotiations.
