In Production

The film unravels adventures of various attempts by individuals and groups during their search for gaps in the Wall in order to permeate and sneak past it.

Synopsis

A closely guarded seven-metre high concrete barrier separates the West Bank from Israel. Getting to the other side is complicated and permits are scarce so the only way left for Palestinians is to cross the border illegally. There is little hope of success but there is no other option. The tense atmosphere, reminiscent of a game of cat and mouse, is enhanced by handheld camera shots, which follow the attempts to cross the border. For a long time director Khaled Jarrar has also focused on the problematic situation of the Palestinians in his photographic projects and performances.
