Beskrivelse

De besatte er en film om fem palæstinenseres liv i Gaza og på Vestbredden. Fortællingen om deres ‘besatte’ hverdag væves sammen med beskrivelsen af det palæstinensiske folks historie, siden de mistede deres land i 1948.

Filmen handler om undertrykkelsens og besættelsens dæmoniske natur; om hadet og vreden hos et folk, hvis åndedræt gennem generationer har været kontrolleret af staten Israel. Men det er også en film om den livsglæde og kærlighed, der vokser frem – trods alt – under deres ufrivillige indespærring.

Filmen vandt Grand Prix ved Odense International Film Festival 2003. I forbindelse med arbejdet på filmen har Jørgen Flindt Pedersen desuden udgivet bogen “Brylluppet i Ramallah”, 2003, Gyldendal.

Description

The Occupied is a film about the life of five Palestinians in Gaza and on The West Bank. The story about their ‘ocupied’ everyday is interwoven with the depiction of the history of the Palestinian nation since losing their land in 1948.

The film deals with the repression and the demonic nature of occupation; with the hatred and anger of a nation, whose every breath has been controlled by the state of Israel. It is, however, also a film about the zest for life and love that, no matter what, is increasing during their involuntary confinement.

The film was awarded the Grand Prix at the Odense International Film Festival in 2003.

In connection with the film Jørgen Flindt Pedersen furthermore published the book ‘Brylluppet i Ramallah’(The Wedding in Ramallah), Gyldendal, 2003.
