Synopsis

Wall
In the summer of 2002, Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon ordered the construction of a massive security wall, which would clearly define the border between Israel and Palestine and prevent Palestinian forces from easily entering Israeli territory. While the wall follows the nation's official borderlines, it cuts through neighborhoods, gardens, farmlands and others areas, serving as an ugly and divisive reminder of the ongoing conflict and ultimately trapping people on both sides within the barrier. Documentary filmmaker Simone Bitton, a Jew born in Morocco who identifies with both Israeli and Arab cultures, examines the long and costly process of building this fence in Wall (aka Mur), which offers a visual record of the barrier's emergence and features interview with the people who build it, as well as those forced to live in its shadow. Wall was screened as part of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The Blood of My Brother: A Story of Death in Iraq
Andrew Berends' documentary The Blood of My Brother attempts to bring the viewer inside the world of the Iraqi people fighting against the U.S.-led invasion of their country. The main focus of the film is Ibrahim, a teenager who must become his family's provider after his older brother is killed while guarding a religious building. He feels great anger toward the Americans and strives for revenge, but he must also confront the realities of caring for his other family members. The filmmakers also spend time with the Medhi Army, one of the insurgent groups in Iraq. The Blood of My Brother had its North American premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
