If you know me then you know I am a big fan of Avatar. It was the greatest piece of film making I have ever seen and I respect James Cameron’s story telling ability. I have said many times this movie has literally taken over the world. I have never seen such a reaction to a movie in my life. Here is another video that just confirms my beliefs. Is this ‘Life Imitating Art or Art Imitating Life?’
The village of Bilin reenacted James Cameron’s new film Avatar during todays weekly demonstration. Five Palestinian, Israeli and international activists were painted blue, with pointy ears and tales, resembling the Avatar characters. Like Palestinians, the Avatars fight imperialism, although the colonizers have different origins. The Avatars presence in Bilin today symbolizes the united resistance to imperialism of all kinds.
