Post-Zionist critique on Israel and the Palestinians part III: Popular culture
Journal of Palestine Studies
University of California Press
This third andfinal part of a summary of post-Zionist critique follows the manifestations of new ways of looking at Israeli history and the "other" in film, theater, novels, music, and poetry. Cinema has the greatest potential for influencing the public and has gone further than the other media in challenging traditional views. The author concludes that the cultural products that have seriously transcended the Zionist narrative and its negative portrayal of the Arabs remain outside the Israeli canon and have limited impact, though the groundwork has been laidfor what is clearly a growing trend.
