1948: Creation and Catastrophe exploits recently release historical film footage. It “is exactly the kind of film many people would do well to watch,” states a review in The Gryphon (newspaper of University of Leeds). “Informative and timely (the release of the film marks 70 years after the creation of the Israeli state), especially when seen in light of the ongoing claims of anti-Semitism rife within the [British] labour party, or recent protests outside the University Union by University of Leeds Palestinian Solidarity Group. An understanding of the conflict is essential and 1948: Creation and Catastrophe provides an insightful and emotional coverage of its very beginnings.”http://[https://www.thegryphon.co.uk/2018/12/02/leeds-2018-palestinian-film-festival-1948-creation-catastrophe-review/]
