Nils Vest: An Oppressed People is Always Right

Danish director Nils Vest offers his controversial Palestine film, shot in a refugee camp in Southern Lebaning in 1974, to be watched online for free, or to be bought at his company. His contact details are mentioned below.

Utrættelige Nils Vest har lagt sin Palæstinafilm fra 1974 på nettet til frit gennemsyn. Han skriver:

Så er der nu mulighed for at se den snart godt brugte, men desværre ikke forældede film om de palæstinensiske flygtninge og Palæstina/Israel-konflikten  –  ET UNDERTRYKT FOLK HAR ALTID RET  –  som streamet video på nettet. I både dansk og engelsk version.

Filmen blev optaget i 1974 i Libanon, havde premiere i 1975, modtog Guldmedalje på Palestine Film Festival i 1976 og måtte i 1977, hvor den også modtog PH-Prisen, trækkes tilbage i nogle måneder for mindre justeringer i speakerteksten, efter pres fra Israel-lobbyen.
At denne lobby så senere fik indgået en aftale med først Statens Filmcentral, siden Filminstituttet, om at filmen aldrig skulle over på video (den lå de første år udelukkende som 16-mm kopier), det kom frem under Operation Dagsværk i 1998. Og SÅ kom den i videodistribution!

Hvis man ikke er tilfreds med at se den på nettet  –  hvorfra den både kan ses direkte og downloades, gratis!  –  kan man købe en DVD-kopi med begge sprogversioner, i højere billedkvalitet for 125 kr. + forsendelse. Se http://www.vestfilm.dk/filmsalg.html
