Experiencing Interruptions?

From Balfour to Banksy: Divisions and Visons in Palestine

100 years ago Britain's Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour
set in motion the vision of Israel...
​His 'Balfour Declaration' had another, disastrous impact:
the dispossession of the Palestinian people.
This film looks at other visions -- including a wide range of views from occupied Palestine today, ranging from anger to attempts at envisioning a future.
It also shows the vision of another Englishman: the contemporary artist Banksy, who has created in Palestine a hotel that is also a remarkable satirical art installation.
How do today's Palestinians live, behind the 'security wall'?
What change must come?
