1948: Creation & Catastrophe

An upcoming documentary about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The year 1948 saw the establishment of the state of Israel, the culmination of generations of Jewish persecution across Europe and Russia. But that same year proved catastrophic for the Palestinians -- 700,000 to 900,000 men, women and children were forced to leave their homes and never allowed to return. 1948 was the most pivotal year in the most controversial conflict in the world, but it is almost never mentioned on American television, radio, or newspaper stories. This documentary aims to change that.

We have traveled to Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, the US and the UK. We have interviewed dozens of Palestinians and Israelis who experienced 1948 first-hand as well as many of the top historians of 1948 -- including Avi Shlaim, Rashid Khalidi, Ilan Pappe, Nur Masalha, Benny Morris and more.
