About the Documentary:

The village of Bil'in is about to lose over a half of its territory to the Wall and to the settlement of Modi'in Elite. The residents of the village decide to embark on a struggle against the construction of the barrier and are joined by international and Israeli activists. Director, Shai Carmeli-Pollak joins the village's struggle for over a year, focusing on two central figures: Mohamed, a member of the village's local committee against the wall, and Wagee, farmer and father of ten, who is losing the majority of his land to the wall and the settlement. The film reveals the relationship formed between the villagers and activists, against the backdrop of their struggle. The film explores a struggle for non-violent resistance and exposes the military’s use of undercover infiltrators (mustaravim) in order to “justify� the use of brutal force against villagers and activists alike.
