Wall (Mur)



Directed by: Simone Bitton

(97 mins) A haunting portrait of one of the most profound geographical markers of our time - the wall of separation constructed by Israel that shields it from adjacent, conflicted Palestinian territories. With masterful restraint, Bitton both abstracts her subjects and extracts its key contradiction as a strangulating protector of life. With interviews from people living on both sides, and with a sharp and knowing camera, this absorbing documentary, in an exceptionally evenhanded manner, shows how the Wall is destroying one of the most historically significant landscapes in the world, while imprisoning one people and enclosing the other.

In Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles.
