Promised Lands. 1974
Description: Susan Sontag scrutinizes the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict and the growing divisions within Jewish thought over the question of Palestinian sovereignty. Shot in Israel during the final days of the Yom Kippur War. Promised Lands is less straight documentary than visual collage. There are photos of combat zones and soldiers, but also daily road life, desert landscapes, funerals, supermarkets, the Wailing Wall. The soundtrack is snatches of radio, bursts of church bells and gunfire, and an extended voiceover from two politically opposed Israeli thinkers.
Released: 19 Dec 1974 Director: Susan Sontag Writers: Susan Sontag Actors: N/A Genres: Documentary, War

Villa Mehu – Kadonnut koti #

Released 3/8/2018

Description: “Villa Mehu – A Lost Home” is a poetic short documentary about the destructive force of time and the fragility of one man’s lifework. It’s a melancholic adventure to the past, a visit to mystical Villa Mehu built by a deceased ITE artist Elis Sinistö. Located deep in the woods of Veklahti, Finland, Villa Mehu served as Sinistö’s home for 50 years and it was also the best artwork of his life although it has never got the respect that it could deserve. Today, after Sinistö’s death, it is decaying slowly but surely towards its final demolition without anyone even noticing. “Villa Mehu – A Lost Home” takes its audience to a hypnotic adventure through the bizarre yet pretty globe of Elis Sinistö. It is both a tribute to his lifework and an attempt to save a tiny piece of Finland’s cultural history.

Description: In "A lot of things don't, don't really exist anymore" I talk to myself about my religious upbringing. I grew up in a fundamental Christian community that built their identity on the understanding of Christianity to be the only real method of living, and therefore a critical reflection about the absolute rightness of their beliefs was utterly out of question. Nonbelievers were seen as "lacking something", as folks who either need to be educated or avoided. A binary opposition which decried all non-Christian cultures and folks as incomplete was imposed, in order to define their own Christian identity as superior and to gain power over the other. The supremacy of an all-encompassing God who divides the globe in "right" and "wrong", "heaven" and "hell" and the demand to commit to such a God everytime felt restrictive to me and deprived me of the agency.

Promised Lands. Reviews:

I think the reviewer above is bringing too much of his own garbage to his review. This innocent crudely edited film has tremendous historical value. The film was made my an American movie maker. It only made about $1,000. How should it be propaganda? One of the unidentified interviewees summed it quite well. For Israelis the 73 fight and the Arab's threat to drive Israelis into the sea was Auschwitz all over again.


Promised Lands is both an Israeli propaganda movie and an antisemitic film.It was created with a random walk through Israel circa 1968 filming random things, interviewing random anonymous people, and watching ordinary Israelis, mostly soldiers, going about their business. Then the audio clips and video clips were thrown on the floor, then picked up in random order and spliced to form the movie. It another words, it has no structure and the audio usually has tiny to do with the video.The primary theme is that Israel is a 100% innocent victim. Arabs hate Jews for no reason, the same as the Nazis. Arabs are worthless stupid people. Their only hope is to rub shoulders with Jews hoping some of their wonderfulness will rub off. It portrays Jews as smug and conceited.The movie carefully avoids the reason for Arab hostility namely the invasion of Palestine in 1948, the setting up of an apartheid state, the confiscation of their lands and the genocide of the Palestinian population.


Should have been so much more interesting to see movie of Israel in the early 70s with nice interviews. Instead we receive interviews with nobodies rambling on, and random images, many of which drag on too long and are fully uninteresting. I should have done better myself with a hand-held camera.
