Movie Info

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.

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.

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.

Director Yoav Shamir has done too little to find significance in what we see. But we still get some sense of the checkpoints as flashpoints, where security begets hostility.
