"Ripples Cross" -- Co-Director Mark Turner's documentary highlights experiences of international human rights activists in Palestine as he travels in the West Bank. Turner's own video footage highlights in startling detail the realities and consequences of what life is like under military closures, curfews, and military occupation, including: The Palestinian Olive Harvest; Demonstrations against the forced closures of civilian areas that result in soldiers violently evicting activists from closed military zones; Turner and another activist shot by Israeli military; Israeli elite commandos raid the hospital where Mark is recuperating; Activists staying inside a Palestinian home slated for demolition by the Israeli military are forced out at gunpoint when soldiers arrive to demolish the house. (2006. 92 minutes. English, Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles.)
