Between Captivity and Freedom

Explore the resilience of the Palestinian spirit in 'Between Captivity and Freedom,' a powerful documentary recounting the experiences of three Palestinian ex-detainees in Israeli jails. In this gripping narrative, we follow the journey of a man locked in a cage in the desert, a pregnant woman who lost one of her unborn babies due to the brutality, and a child subjected to harsh conditions in a prison for kids.

Witness the emotional struggles and the remarkable strength of these survivors as they grapple with psychological scars, lost identities, and the enduring hope for a life beyond captivity. Yet, they remain in high spirits and stand proud in defending their right to freedom. Their tales are just one of many that embody the universal quest for freedom and the triumph of the human will.
