Seven documentary films by eight young directors, Palestinian and Israeli, reflecting the complexity of life in Jerusalem, in the context of the Israeli Palestinian conflict. They courageously confront the delicate and charged issues and present personal and political points of view about the reality in Jerusalem today.

The Shu'afat refugee camp lies on the edge of Jerusalem. Carrying blue Jerusalem IDs, but now separated from the city by the wall and a checkpoint, residents of the camp find themselves caught between Jerusalem and the West Bank. Deprived of civil services, the camp has become an over-crowded, no-man's land plagued by garbage, drugs, and violence. Out of the daily struggle for survival and identity rises G-Town, a young rap group bringing voice to life in the camp and defining the Jerusalem style of Palestinian hip hop.


Hebrew and Arabic subtitles are available for download only in DVD format.
