The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has inspired an abundant filmography, which traces the main events and addresses many aspects of the conflict. Based on a material composed of about eighty feature films and television series, the chapter studies the way international law with respect to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is represented on screen. Three major themes emerged in this regard, which are analysed successively: the creation of the State of Israel and its consequences on the Palestinian people; the Israeli occupation; the peace process in the Middle East and the ways to achieve it. The chapter concludes with a broader reflection on the place occupied by cinema in the conflict, as a means of struggle, as the object of controversy or as a symbol.
