70 minutes · 2013
Using a handheld camera, Khaled Jarrar documents those Palestinians who climb over the wall blocking them from Israel, and the smugglers who make a living off them. These infiltrators suffer imprisonment, brutal beatings from guards, and the injuries that can result from dropping 20 feet to the ground, but as many of them attest, they see no other option. The progression of Jarrar's involvement is most interesting: he might start out at a distance from his subjects, with shots reminiscent of static surveillance footage, but the imagery grows in urgency and intimacy as he finds himself in the trenches with them (literally). Though the poor picture quality can make this difficult to watch, the film is redeemed by its human moments; in one scene an elderly woman makes her periodic pilgrimage to a small gap in the wall where she can speak with her daughter and grandchildren. In Arabic with subtitles.
