Ali's Well Scene All Right

Today I played this "Ali's Well" segment from the 1962 cinema classic Lawrence of Arabia to show my students both the tribalism of the period as well as the first rumblings of Arab Nationalism as well as the physical climate and geography of that part of the world as well as the cinematic portrayal of British involvement in Arabia (and subsequently Palestine) in World War One in the context of the current Middle East Conflict unit for my tenth grade world history student teaching placement at Atascadero High School. This is undoubtedly one of the best movie scenes of all time.
