Breaking new ground and laying bare old myths, the film explores the little-known history of Palestine during the latter part of the Ottoman Empire, a time of relative harmony between Arabs and Jews. Weaving the raveled threads of Arab and Jewish narratives back together, 1913: Seeds of Conflict provides new and fascinating insights into events that took place in Palestine, which presaged a century of unrest. The film examines the divergent social forces growing in Palestine before World War I that fueled the rise of Jewish and Arab nationalism.
