Al Manar TV: In the Name of the Hezbollah

2004 NR

Highly controversial, the Arab television station Al Manar has come under scrutiny for acting as the mouthpiece for the terrorist group Hezbollah, broadcasting incendiary reports and allegedly promoting anti-Semitism. This film goes behind the cameras to explore the practices, perceptions and audience of the station that offers a decidedly different view of Israel than what the Western media depict. Elisabeth Drevillon and Olivier Ferraro direct.
