Valentino's ghost: images of Arabs/Muslims in the American mainstream media.

Summary: Valentino's Ghost takes viewers on a chronological journey through more than a century of images of Muslims, Arabs and Islam in the U.S. media, from the early 20th-century fantasies of romantic sheiks to today's damaging stereotypes as evil fanatics. Through interviews with Robert Fisk, Niall Ferguson, and John Mearsheimer amongst others, the film shows the way in which the changing image of Arabs and Muslims has mirrored America's political agenda in the Middle East. Valentino's Ghost aims to sharpen viewers' media literacy and increase their skills in questioning media representations, especially those of minority groups and people with whom our government is in conflict. The film ends with a report of a few Hollywood films that have provided complex images and avoided ethnic stereotyping.--Container.

Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People

This documentary reveals the "persistent pattern of slanderous Arab stereotyping." Drawing from materials from the earliest silent movies to recent blockbusters, it shows images which show disturbing similarities to anti-Semitic and racist stereotypes and their "political resonance during key moments of conflict in U.S. history."

Identity, place, and subversion in contemporary Mizrahi cinema in Israel.
Lilly Library PN1993.5.I86 S54 2013
Check availability @ Duke
Summary: "In Identity, Place, and Subversion in Contemporary Mizrahi Cinema in Israel, Yaron Shemer articulates the modalities through which Mizrahi (Oriental-Jewish or Arab-Jewish) films employ narratives, characters, and space to glean ethnic identities and, often, to redraw ethnic boundaries. This study's approach to Mizrahi ethnicity in Israel then stands in stark contrast to the conventional precept of the societal pastiche in modern Israel and the regnant discourse about the widespread dismissal of ethnic divisions in the country. For decades after the establishment of the State, Israeli films mostly acquiesced with Zionism's dominant discourse whereby the Mizrahi was deemed an inferior other whose "Levantine" culture was believed to pose a threat to the Western-oriented Zionist enterprise. Shemer explores the continuous marginalization of the Mizrahi in contemporary Israeli cinema and the challenge some Mizrahi films offer to the subjugation of this ethnic group. Beyo! nd its textual analysis, the book examines the role cultural policies and institutional power in Israel have recently played in shaping Mizrahi cinema and the creation of a Mizrahi niche in cinema--a space that defines and contains contesting voices more than it nourishes them. Ultimately, this pioneering work charts a new territory of academic inquiry; Identity, Place, and Subversion in Contemporary Mizrahi Cinema in Israel is designed to facilitate the making of "Mizrahi Cinema" a legitimate, recognized, and vibrant scholarly field"--

Palestine in Film: A Guide and an Annotated Filmography
http://www.adc.org/fileadmin/ADC/Pdfs/Palestine_in_Film.pdf
This guide and filmography provides a brief outline of Palestinian film production and distribution and points readers towards the films themselves, towards commentary on the films, towards film institutions, and towards other sources of information. The films listed here were made by Palestinians, or are about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, or about matters related to Palestine. Some are well-known films; others are largely unknown. This introductory guide is by no means complete, but can be a gateway into the world of Palestinian film -- a starting point for casual viewers, serious students, educators, academics, filmmakers, and advocates for a just peace.
