Following on from his 2004 film The Wall, Brunner’s latest documentary focuses on the impact of Israel’s expropriations for and construction of the West Bank wall as it encircles and carves apart integral parts of Palestinian East Jerusalem. Based on extended and intimate interviews with residents of Bethlehem and Abu Dis, the film shows how Palestinian daily life is affected by Israel’s enforcement of new and unnatural geographic and jurisdictional realities imposed upon the historical capital and its residents.
