Johan van der Keuken sees as much division between cultures and societies as he sees unity between people, and he tries to deal with both. This attempt to represent, in a progressive way, different levels of perception and reality leads him away from a question-and-answer form. His approach is very different from political media which takes up an issue and offers possible resolutions to problems. DE PALESTIJNEN was made as a “tool” for understanding cause and effect in the Middle East. The contradictions that arise in terms of van der Keuken films’ reception show how difficult the problem is. But despite criticisms, at least van der Keuken is confronting the issue head on. (Cohn Chambers)
