Discordia

Montreal's Concordia University made international headlines in September 2002 when a student rally protesting a campus visit by former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu resulted in a small-scale riot. The school's temporary ban on all Middle-East-related activism further kindled political passions, which eventually reignited and led to the suspension of the Jewish student league Hillel. Shot on digital video, Ben Addelman and Samir Mallal's Discordia (2004, 71 min.) is a textbook case showing how easily young people on either side of the conflict can be blindsided by emotion and manipulated by the media. In English and subtitled French, Hebrew, and Arabic.
