"When asked what inspired him to make 'Full Signal', [Palestinian/American documentarian Talal] Jabari responds, 'my daughter.' He had heard about the dangers of cell phones, and when a cell tower went up on his neighbor's roof, he became more informed and more concerned. 'The day my wife and I went to the hospital [to have our daughter], there was some sort of incident in a Arab town where they had burned down cell towers... perhaps that stuck with me... until I decided to make the film.'" Sarah Harlan, Palestine Note, 26 March 2010.
