Checkpoint

“Is this freedom? Is this the peace they’ve promised us?” –Palestinian at checkpoint

The West Bank and the Gaza Strip have been under military rule since the Israeli occupation began in 1967.

The Intifada (civil uprising) of 1987 created a new reality and resulted in an increased military presence in the occupied territories. The collapse of the Oslo Accords brought about futher escalation between the two sides, eventually setting off the second Intifada in 2000.

Today over three million Palestinians live in the occupied territories. Dozens of checkpoints are scattered throughout the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. These checkpoints are located at the entrance to all Palestininan cities and between the villages.

This film was shot between the years 2001 to 2003. (Excerpt from film)
