A Palestinian-Native American comparative struggleWith their flowing rivers, broad valleys and big skies, Native American reservations in the United States can seem a far cry from the packed, twisting alleyways of Palestinian refugee camps, such as Lebanon's Burj al-Barajneh, yet filmmakers Matt Peterson and Malek Rasamny disagree. The pair have set out to connect the struggles of the living communities of Native Americans with that of Palestinians. The Native and The Refugee is a project that combines archival material, short films and interviews that Peterson and Rasamny have been collecting since 2014 .The pair have been trying to understand the centrality of land for the two communities, both for people and for political organization.
