Movie Info

Amos Gitai (RABIN, FREE ZONE) returns to the occupied territories for the first time since his 1982 documentary FIELD DIARY. WEST OF THE JORDAN RIVER describes the efforts of citizens, Israelis and Palestinians, who are trying to overcome the consequences of occupation. Gitai's film shows the human ties woven by the military, human rights activists, journalists, mourning mothers and even Jewish settlers. Faced with the failure of politics to solve the occupation issue, these men and women rise and act in the name of their civic consciousness. This human energy is a proposal for long overdue change.

Critic Reviews for West of the Jordan River

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

A film that has a lot to say but lacking the appropriate way to say it.

January 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"West of the Jordan River" is as formally precise at it is politically unapologetic.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The maddeningly unfocused Israeli documentary West of the Jordan River doesn't reveal anything insightful about Gaza settlers' reasons for either supporting or rejecting a two-state solution.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Through interviews with Israeli politicians, and Palestinians and Israelis in the West Bank, "West of the Jordan River" gives voice to peace-seeking residents on both sides of the conflict.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

A dry and sometimes depressing film, but informative and humane too.

June 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Not only a thought-provoking, moving and surprisingly optimistic documentary, but an intimate, handmade artifact that can look forward to wide exposure on the festival circuit ahead.
