Abstract

Portuguese Abstract: O presente trabalho aborda a situação de conflito entre Israel e Palestina, durante a primeira Intifada Palestina (1987-1992), a partir do ponto de vista do jornalista e quadrinista Joe Sacco. Sua obra "Palestina" é uma reportagem escrita pelo método da arte sequencial, em formato de quadrinhos, e trata das experiências que o autor viveu enquanto esteve em meio ao povo palestino, nos territórios ocupados por Israel. O período descrito por Sacco compreende dois meses e meio, no inverno de 1991-1992, nos últimos dias da primeira Intifada, que foi um levante nacional dos palestinos contra a ocupação israelense. Sacco utlizou, principalmente, o método de entrevistas com as pessoas que encontrou durante sua estada na Palestina. Descrevendo os detalhes do cotidiano dos palestinos durante a primeira Intifada, Sacco aborda um ponto de vista amplamente ignorado pela grande mídia norte-americana: a perspectiva dos palestinos.

English Abstract: The present work addresses the conflict situation concerning the first Palestinian Intifada (1987-1992), from the perspective of journalist and comic artist Joe Sacco. His artwork "Palestine" is a report he wrote using sequential art methods, in a graphic novel shape, and deals with the experiences lived by the author while he was among the Palestinian people, at the territories occupied by Israeli army forces. The period of time described by Sacco is of two and a half months, in the winter of 1991-1992, at the last days of the first Intifada, which was a national uprising of the Palestinians against Israel's occupation forces. Sacco interviewed the people he met during his time in Palestine. By describing in details the day to day of Palestinians, Sacco expresses a perspective that is largely ignored by the mainstream North-American media: the Palestinian perspective.
