We proudly present notes to eternity in its British Premiere as part of our #DirectedByWomen2017 season. Director Sarah Cordery, as well as Sara Roy (Senior Research Scholar at the Centre for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University) will be present for a post-screening Q&A.
notes to eternity is an impressionistic meditation on the Israel-Palestine conflict centering on the lives and ideas of four renowned critics of Israel: Noam Chomsky, Sara Roy, Norman Finkelstein and Robert Fisk. All four have strong personal connections to the issue that traverse and transcend historical and cultural lines.
Chomsky, Roy and Finkelstein are Jewish, while Roy and Finkelstein are also the children of Holocaust survivors. Robert Fisk is a foreign correspondent based in Lebanon who has spent over thirty-five years covering 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.
