(p.3) Slavoj Žižek in Ramallah
What Does a Jew Want?

Columbia University Press

This chapter focuses on the world premiere of Udi Aloni's film, Forgiveness, in Ramallah. The screening of Forgiveness was attended by intellectuals as well as Palestinian artists and filmmakers such as Mahmoud Darwish and Slavoj Žižek. Two hours before the event, the second Lebanon war began as Israel entered Lebanon. In the film's commentary notes, Aloni wrote: “People flee from traumatic zones in an attempt to find a new life, only to find out that they are going back to the terror time and again.” This chapter describes the tension that foregrounds the Ramallah premiere of Forgiveness, along with some remarks by Aloni and Žižek about the film.

Keywords:   world premiere, Udi Aloni, film, Forgiveness, Ramallah, Mahmoud Darwish, Slavoj Žižek, Lebanon war, Israel
