This all goes on until Bacha either runs out of budget, patience or film, and ends up cutting to the somewhat positive results.

No one can believe that "Budrus" is showing us the key to peace in the Middle East. But any positive note about this most intractable of conflicts should be savored.

Bacha, who worked on the impressive 2004 documentary "Control Room," does well to focus on one tiny town and its leading citizens; "Budrus" is at its best when she keeps the scale small.

Uncertain which approach to use, the filmmakers try a little of everything: sit-down interviews, in-the-moment footage, sentimental close-ups. A patient, on-the-ground approach would mostly have sufficed. But the movie is fascinating anyway.

For those who despair of ever seeing peace in the Middle East, Budrus offers both sobering and cheering evidence that progress is possible.

What's most gratifying about Budrus is that the film enables us to feel some of the same emotions the participants experienced.

Documentaries warrant viewpoints, but they should also provide perspective on more than one side of a contentious issue.

The little-told story of a small but growing nonviolent opposition movement among rural West Bank Palestinians gets an airing in Julia Bachas mostly fair-minded documentary.
