Abstract
The Israel-Palestinian conflict has always had the interest of many academic fields. We will in this thesis look into some of the social-psychological mechanisms that can occur in, what we address as, an intractable ethnonational conflict. We will use theories of societal beliefs, clash of narratives, irretraceable ethnonational conflicts and identity. Through two documentary films, “Promises” and “To die in Jerusalem”, we will analyse how societal beliefs are reflected and how they are conveyed. We will implement these theories through discourse analysis and film analysis. Our results will contribute to understanding societal beliefs in Israel-Palestine.
