A documentary on the birth of the Palestinian refugee problem. AL NAKBA tackles the tragic events surrounding the creation of the Palestinian refugee problem. It tells how and why 750,000 Palestinian Arabs became refugees by the end of the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948. Arab and Israeli eyewitnesses together with Professor Benny Morris of Ben-Gurion University, who is the leading international authority on this subject, describe what happened rather than what successive generations of Israeli and Arab propagandists have said happened. Film makers Benny Brunner and Alexandra Jansse spoke with Palestinians and Israelis of different backgrounds including: Azni Bishara, an Arab-Israeli philosopher and member of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) Shaban Muhmoud, a Palestinian refugee from the village of Zakariya (near Jerusalem), Itzhak Pundak, a retired Israeli colonel and diplomat.
