West of the Jordan River (DVD)
Directed by Amos Gitai
Also Available On:iTunes Amazon Google Play Vudu Booking Inquiry
Amos Gitai (Rabin, The Last Day; Kadosh; Free Zone) returns to the occupied territories for the first time since his 1982 documentary Field Diary with this portrait of the citizens, Israelis and Palestinians, who are trying to overcome the consequences of occupation. West of the Jordan River 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.
"Thought-provoking, moving and surprisingly optimistic."
“A compelling snapshot of a region desperate for change... a surprisingly uplifting ode to tolerance and peace."
