An ambulance is stopped, and the sick people inside brought out to explain their ailments. A mother is separated from her very young children. Young Palestinians laugh and throw snowballs at Israeli soldiers, who jovially respond in kind. One Israeli soldier harasses a pretty Palestinian girl. Another refers to the Arabs as "animals," and suggests the documentary crew is making a film for the Discovery Channel. Palestinians wait in the pouring rain while an Israeli soldier eats his lunch.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Of all Israeli films on this subject, this is the most unbiased and honest and also one of the most valuable.
This grueling Israeli documentary filmed in the occupied territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip leaves you infuriated and mystified.
Tells an interesting story without imposing an authoritative voice on the film
Checkpoint adds a a whole other dimension to the debate over civil liberties by letting its unflinching footage speak for itself.
Checkpoint is an unflinchingly honest Israeli documentary about the humiliations of the Palestinians every day and the pressures on the occupying soldiers.
