Route 181: Fragments of a Journey in Palestine-israel


About The Film

Walls continue to be raised, barbed-wires laid down, new borders succeeding those already present in the collective unconscious of both peoples. What can cinema do before a situation so desperately devoid of hope? Sivan and Khleifi, faced with the tragic torments shaking their societies, come together in a sort of filmic act of faith. They believe that the only "realistic" solution rests in the prospect of a binational state where citizens share equal rights and duties for peaceful coexistence.
