Description

This video documents the everyday lives of two mixed gay Palestinian-Israeli couples. Faced with injustices of work visas, checkpoints, harassment and prejudices, these individuals resist oppression and take steps to build a sense of peace, mutual respect and hope. Blended into this story is the director's account of growing up with Zionist grandparents who were involved in the founding of the state of Israel. Her recollection of an idealized Israel of the 1950s now raises questions of humanity, conflict and nationalist aspiration. National Film Board (NFB).
