A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion
THE INNER TOUR
A touching film about the Palestinian right of return
At time of the film’s production in 2000—just months before the second Intifada—Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza and were allowed into ’48 Palestine on sightseeing tours.
The Inner Tour documents a three-day trip through Galilee to the Lebanon border, Tel Aviv and Jaffa where many of the passengers once lived. We hear conversations about occupation and loss. Several have been in Israeli prisons. Another sees his mother in Lebanon through barbed wire, unable to visit her. One woman tells how her husband was gunned down by Israeli soldiers while walking home. One man locates the site where his village once stood before it was destroyed by occupation forces, and finds his father’s grave. 2002, Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles, 98 min.
