A PALESTINIAN WOMAN


Directed by | Andrew Courtney & Emily Perry

Genre documentary  |  Length: 24mins  |  Year of production: 2006


This short documentary, filmed alongside the wall that Israel continues to build in the West Bank, brings the viewer close to the conditions isolating Palestinians within their communities. Terry Bulatta, mother, teacher and community activist, shows the filmmakers how the 27 foot high wall surrounds her neighborhood in East Jerusalem, separating it from the adjacent neighborhood of Abu Dis and severing the human bonds linking these communities. The camera joins her on a half hour drive from one side of the wall to the other a trip that previously took only four minutes. We learn of the terminals and checkpoints through which Palestinians must pass, of the settlements, and of the land confiscations which Terry describes as elements of an apartheid, system which makes settlers “masters of the land”.
