Film director Leila Sansour returns to Bethlehem to make a film about
her home town, soon to be encircled by a wall. The film spans seven
momentous years in the life of Bethlehem, revealing a city of astonishing
beauty and political strife under occupation.

One of the most remarkable and moving documentaries I have seen,
about this unreported story. The tragedy of the Palestinians encapsulated
in the life of one family and one town- Bethlehem. See the film, then go
to Bethlehem and see for yourself. Jon Snow

90 minutes, Leila Sansour, UK, 2014 (NC)
