This documentary film about a palestinian women brings the viewer close to the conditions isolating Palestinians within their communities. The docu is filmed next to the separation barrier that Israel continues to build in the occupied Palestinian territories.
Terry Boulatta is a mother, teacher and community activist. She shows us how the 27 foot high wall surrounds her neighborhood in East Jerusalem, dividing it from the adjacent community of Abu Dis, severing the historical bonds of the two communities. The wall contributes to the suffocation of life, the latest reality for Palestinians under occupation.
She also takes us on a half hour drive to get from one side of the wall to the other, a trip that previously took palestinians only four minutes. We learn of the terminals and checkpoints through which Palestinians must pass to travel within their own territory.
Terry speaks of the illegal settlements and land confiscations as elements of apartheid, making the Jewish settlers “the masters of the land.” The fears of the jewish people from palestinian attacks are shown in this documentary, but it clearly takes some side with the people from Palestina.
