West Of The Jordan River (2017)
94min | Documentary
West of the Jordan River describes the efforts of citizens, Israelis and Palestinians, who are trying to overcome the consequences of the Occupation.
Amos Gitai returns to the Occupied Territories for the first time since his 1982 documentary Field Diary. West of the Jordan River describes the efforts of citizens, Israelis and Palestinians, who are trying to overcome the consequences of the Occupation. Gitai’s film shows the human ties woven by human rights activists, journalists, mourning mothers, the military, and Jewish settlers. Faced with the failure of politics to solve the Occupation, these women and men rise and act in the name of their civic consciousness. This human energy is a proposal for a long overdue change.
