Filmmakers Malek Rasamny and Matt Peterson make use of various media practices, working with and alongside Native American and Palestinian communities to document communities and understand struggles going on in Indian reservations and in Palestinian refugee camps. In this interview with Rania Al Namara, they talk about the collaborative practices they employed in creating the multimedia project The Native and the Refugee and how they experimented in moving beyond traditional ideas of intended audience and viewer reception in an attempt to turn this project into a wider platform for international solidarity and critical reflection.
