Description :
This paper explores the value and role of critical notions of space in the current impasse in Palestine-Israel through a case study on two films, one by Elia Suleiman and the other by Michel Khleifi and Eyal Sivan. It argues that space, if imagined as dynamic, in-between and potentially connecting Palestinians and Israelis, can be transformative and have a positive role to play in interrogating us/them relationships, power inequalities and Othering in the region. It also highlights the value of using third space and performance to help create a spatial politics of affect, which may in turn lead to changing perceptions of the Other in conflict regions.
