    Amazing documentary, and yet so very sad in truth. This woman had the future --- the very lives of so many children --- in her hands, and in her effort to empower, she taught ongoing condemnation. We must seek peace through collaboration... not retalliation.

    This film is a deeply human, straightforward depiction of children's lives in the occupied territories, and the psychological damage the violence and deprivation that is part of their everyday lives has upon them. It is also a testiment to what can happen when prejudice is put aside - let us not forget that the directors are Israeli Jews. In an age where terrorism is a buzz word and This film is a deeply human, straightforward depiction of children's lives in the occupied territories, and the psychological damage the violence and deprivation that is part of their everyday lives has upon them. It is also a testiment to what can happen when prejudice is put aside - let us not forget that the directors are Israeli Jews. In an age where terrorism is a buzz word and justifies all and any reprisals, this film is a reminder of the realities that create violence, and is relevant to us all. Expand

    This movie is excellent but very sad. It's terrible that in our world, this movie could be true.

    A wonderful movie that depicts the big picture of the circle of violence in that troubled part of the world. Many will disagree however, but 8 years of filiming is no doubt an extraordinary work and deserve an 80 minute watch, which is its length. Juliano Mer Khamis is indeed presents an inside deep look as he himself worked at the Israeli defense force and has witnessed army atrocities A wonderful movie that depicts the big picture of the circle of violence in that troubled part of the world. Many will disagree however, but 8 years of filiming is no doubt an extraordinary work and deserve an 80 minute watch, which is its length. Juliano Mer Khamis is indeed presents an inside deep look as he himself worked at the Israeli defense force and has witnessed army atrocities for which he spent 16 months in prison for reacting to one incidence. Conclusion: MUST SEE! Expand

  1. In contrast to the clueless media cliches about suicide bombers, this offers a comprehensive and comprehending portrait of what helps to produce them.

    Must-see docu penetrates a Jenin refugee camp to follow several Palestinian children from laughing little kids in a theater group to grim actors on a grislier world stage.

    Refreshing and depressing.
