Unitarian Universalist Church - Main Hall
505 E. Charleston, Palo Alto
|Organizer/Author||World Centric - Aseem Das|
A close-up look at the building of Israel’s apartheid wall or “security fence” around the West Bank: a system of trenches, electronic fencing, razor wire, concrete walls, sensors, cameras, and remote-controlled machine guns which stretches for more than 600 kilometers; and the devastating effect it is having on the Palestinians whose lives are affected by it. Benny Brunner’s "The Wall" documents the construction of the wall and the devastating impact it is having on Palestinians, placing the “separation barrier” in the context of other forms of control, including checkpoints, roadblocks and closure, that the Palestinians have been increasingly subject to since 1991. 54 minutes, 2003.
Uda Walker of the Middle East Children\'s Alliance will speak and lead an open discussion after the film.
