Notes to eternity is an impressionistic meditation on the Israel-Palestine conflict centering on the lives and ideas of four renowned critics of Israeli policy: Noam Chomsky, Sara Roy, Norman Finkelstein and Robert Fisk.
Sara Roy and Norman Finkelstein are Jewish American intellectuals and the children of Holocaust survivors. Both have been regularly visiting the Occupied Territories since the 1980s. Robert Fisk is a Beirut-based Middle East correspondent who has spent over 35 years reporting on conflicts in the region.
World-renowned scholar and activist Noam Chomsky is central in the film. From a profoundly Jewish background, he is remarkable for his long-standing support for Palestinian justice. This is the first feature-length documentary to focus more fully on his life-long involvement with the Israel-Palestine issue.
The film takes shape around their reflections through a series of ‘notes’, where fragmentation becomes the lingua franca of memory and identity. The two world wars, the Holocaust, the Vietnam War, Civil Rights, East Timor, the conquest of the New World and the “fundamental bias” of the Judeo-Christian heritage all enter the frame.
THE DIRECTOR SARAH CORDERY AND SARA ROY WILL TAKE PART IN A Q & A FOLLOWING THE SCREENING.
