Mur

Fortnight 2004, Feature film, 1h39

Synopsis

Mur is a cinematic reflection on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in which the filmmaker clouds the issues of hatred by insisting on her double culture as Jew and Arab. In an original documentary approach, the film follows the line of separation that is eviscerating one of the most history-laden landscapes in the world, imprisoning some and enclosing others. On the building site of this aberrant wall, the daily utterances and holy chants, in Hebrew and in Arabic, withstand the discourses of war and pass through the tumult of drills and bulldozers.
