Dreams of a Nation: Palestinian Cinema

A hopefully-comprehensive and ever-growing list of movies about Palestine (in the broadest possible sense).

Organized alphabetically (for now).
Short films are included.
No distinction is made between documentary or fiction narratives
Films by Palestinian directors are not automatically included; Israeli productions are not automatically included.
