Trailerama: Budrus

In 2003, Israel responded to the Intifada by building a wall around the Palestinian territories. That wall cut straight through the tiny village of Budrus, dividing the cemetery and leaving many citizens disenfranchised of their land. Julia Bacha’s new film looks at what happened next. A peaceful protest movement united Israelis and Palestinians, Fatah and Hamas alike. Bacha previously directed the acclaimed Control Room about al-Jazeera. We’re looking forward to her take on an always sensitive subject.
