Synopsis

Tragedy in the Holy Land: The Second Uprising
Documentary filmmaker Denis Mueller has combined rare historical footage with present-day news coverage and interviews from respected historians and political analysts to examine the ongoing crisis in the Middle East, in this case, from the perspective of the Palestinians. Tragedy in the Holy Land: The Second Uprising attempts to clarify one of the most heated and poorly understood international conflicts of our times, and offer a more focused portrait of the issues and perspectives behind both nations involved. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
