Using straight-to-camera interviews and circa-2003 footage of the confrontations between villagers and Israeli soldiers, Columbia University-educated, Brazilian filmmaker Julia Bacha has made a film that will stick in the craw of hardliners.
Bacha's film has a naive charm that fits well with the simple goals of the people, who were just asking that they be allowed to continue raising their kids and making a living in the place where they grew up.
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.
