On Barriers

In this collection, we present you with documentaries dealing with diverse barriers: the material, political, physical and social. We invite you to explore three stories of individuals and groups confronting their barriers: Director Khaled Jarrar follow a group of Palestinian “Infiltrators” as they seek routes through the bewildering maze of The Separation Wall. While “Saken”, directed by Sandra Madi tells the story of friendship, sacrifice and physical barriers of Ibrahim and his devoted caretaker Walid. “Aisha”, directed by Asma Bseiso presents us with a story of an incredible young woman as she makes bold decisions that will change her life forever. Enjoy watching and share your thoughts.
