The film

Synopsis

Wall is a personal cinematic meditation on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in which filmmaker Simone Bitton documents the construction of the massive separation barrier that is destroying one of the most historically significant landscapes in the world. Bitton utilises her shared Jewish-Arab identity to talk impartially to people on both sides, blurring the lines of hatred in this troubled region. She highlights some of the ironies - from the Palestinian construction labourers grateful for the work to the concrete factory where business is booming - and also examines how the wall represents security for one people and virtual imprisonment for the other. Compelling and thought-provoking, Wall offers a last glimpse of the beauty of this land and the humanity of its inhabitants as they disappear behind a shield of iron and concrete.
