This study deals with a number of recording films produced by Palestinian women living under the Israeli occupation. As for their main issue, the films are about awareness as depicted by these women. The study focuses on reading the recordings as one text comprised of various parts pertaining to numerous viewpoints regarding a reality, the characteristics of which have got much in common in terms of depth and comprehensiveness. Therefore, this study is auxiliary in exploring and highlighting the basic signs which these films present. This trend puts the study, from a theoretical and methodological viewpoint, together, directly and indirectly, within a context of rich heritage, i.e. the sociology of culture, extending from Lucien Goldman to many others, on the basis that this context is the most appropriate for such studies. This also explains its recourse to a number of basic concepts centred on world vision, text, discourse, semiotics and awareness.
