Civil Alliance A film by Ariella Azoulay 2012 (English subtitles after the opening scene).
Jews and Palestinians gather around a map of Mandatory Palestine to report a civil race against the clock taking place in palestine until the founding of the State of Israel in May 1948. Intense civil activity was happening throughout the country,in which participants raised demands, sought compromises, set rules, formulated agreements ... and did everything possible not to let violence take over their lives. They did their utmost to halt the violence that national and military forces were intent on igniting and negotiated with each other in order to create mutual civil alliances. This film is based upon civil/historical/visual research.

The Promise, broadcast on Channel 4 and still available on their website. Peter Kosminski's four part drama covering two periods sixty years apart in time. A young British woman, Erin, spending the summer with a Jewish family in Israel, retraces places and people from the diary of her grandfather, Len, who served in the British army in Palestine in 1947-8. Stunning, and highly disturbing.
