Top five films: Best of the big screen at Australian film fest includes ‘1948, Creation and Catastrophe’
The Sydney Morning Herald
In a listing of its top five films shown at various venues in Australia, the newspaper included “1948, Creation and Catastrophe,” which was co-produced and co-directed by Ahlam Muhtaseb, CSUSB professor of communication studies.
The film was shown at the Palestinian Film Festival.
The listing read: “Straightforward in style but dense with information, Andy Trimlett and Ahlam Muhtaseb's documentary on the partition of Palestine and the subsequent Arab-Israeli War incorporates often harrowing firsthand testimony from both sides. Essentially, however, this is the story from the Palestinian perspective – which in itself is worth the attention of anyone who wants to understand the world today.”
