“Not only a thought-provoking, moving and surprisingly optimistic documentary, but an intimate, handmade artifact. ” Variety

Renowned Israeli director Amos Gitai (Rabin, the Last Day) returns to the Occupied Territories after more than three decades in this informative and moving documentary. A series of interviews with local residents (both Jewish settlers and Palestinians), journalists, activists and politicians (including Yitzhak Rabin, whom Gitai met in 1994) reveal a complex and nuanced reality. The often-conflicting voices reflect the impasse reached in the last few decades and especially since the assassination of Rabin. A film that is as timely and important as ever.
