Sons of Jabal Amel (English Subtitles)
 
One of the most authoritative and powerful documentaries regarding the genesis of Hezbollah. Created by Revayat-e Fath, one of the most prestigious production houses in Iran, Sons of Jabal Amel gives an alternative, exclusive look into the development of Lebanese Shiites in a homogeneous Lebanese state. Told from a resistance-axis point of view, the documentary offers new insights into the cultural, ecological and ideological mechanics of the Lebanese Shi'i community and their sustained adherence and loyalty to the movement. Exclusive footage and/or interviews with: Prof. Dr. Mustafa Chamran, Hassan Nasrallah, Abbas al-Musawi and Imam Musa Sadr.
 
Excerpt: The historical region of Jabal Amel and its significant array of scholars, poets, intellectuals and resistance leaders is situated in southern Lebanon. This area is also most affected by Israeli assaults seeking to annex these areas. Because of the historical vulnerability and importance of Jabal Amel, the people of this rugged mountainous area are born into resistance, live in resistance and die in resistance. Sons of Jabal Amel begins with the introduction of Abu Dharr al-Ghiffari, a loyal companion of the Prophet Muhammed and his son and law, Ali. Abu Dharr was exiled to this region and converted the local community to Islam and more specifically, Shi'ism. In Islamic literature, he is deemed one of the first Shi'is signifying resistance to the ruling status quo. What Abu Dharr had left the people of Jabal Amel, was an eager apetite for honor, dignity and vigor--free from the oppression and rule of external entities. Sons of Jabal Amel thus depicts the evolution and development of resistance in this region, ending with Hezbollah as the most recent and successful story to date.
 
Release date: October 4, 2008
