Jewish and Palestinian children are followed for three years and put in
touch with each other, in this alternative look at the
Jewish-Palestinian conflict. The three filmmakers followed a group of
seven local children between 1995 and 1998. They all have a totally
different background. These seven children tell their own story about
growing up in Jerusalem. Through this portrait of their generation, we
see how deep rooted and almost insoluble the problems of the Middle
East have become. When the protagonists speak out in an epilogue a
couple of years later, it becomes apparent that all have lost their
childlike innocence." (IMDb write-up)
film detailing the history of Islam from Muhammad to the Ottoman Empire.
Documentary film about the
life of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
Documentary about non-violent
demonstrations conducted by the residents of a Palestinian village
north west of Jerusalem called Budrus in the early 2000s againist the
building of the wall -- the Israeli West Bank barrier -- being built
around Palestinian occupied territory. In the case of the village
of Budrus, the wall was separating the villagers from their land on
which most villagers farmed. This would separate most people from
their means of livlyhood. Through their non-violent
demonstrations the people of Budrus were able to change the direction
of the wall. This is a very enlightening documentary.
