Palestine Blues

This first-person documentary about the effects of the security wall Israel's building across occupied Palestine in defiance of the International Court of Justice is an affecting cri de coeur, though director Nida Sinnokrot takes sides—we don't hear about any Palestinian terrorism. It's hard not to mourn with Arabs who've been convicted of nothing but have been driven out of homes and farms where their families have lived and worked for generations or to stomach the “Israelis only” road across which a Palestinian hauls furniture by hand. Bulldozers are made to seem like movie monsters, but most effective is Sinnokrot's constantly roving camera, sometimes tilted sideways, which effectively conveys the Palestinians' wrenching displacement. In English and Arabic with subtitles. 72 min.
