*Fragments Of A Journey In Palestine-Israel***

In the summer of 2002, Michel Khleifi and Eyal Sivan, a Palestinian and 
an Israeli, travelled together from the south to the north of their 
country of birth, traced their trajectory on a map and called it Route 
181. This virtual line follows the borders outlined in UN Resolution 181 
that was to partition Palestine into two states.

As they travel along this route, they encounter men and women, Israeli 
and Palestinian, young and old, civilians and soldiers, filming them in 
their everyday lives. Each of these characters has their own way of 
evoking the frontiers that separate them from their neighbours: 
concrete, barbed-wire, cynicism, humour, indifference, suspicion, 
aggression...

Frontiers have been built on the hills and in the plains, on mountains 
and in valleys but above all inside the minds and souls of these two 
peoples and in the collective unconscious of both societies. With Route 
181: Fragments of a Journey in Palestine-Israel, Michel Khleifi and Eyal 
Sivan take us on a disorientating journey across this tiny territory 
with vast ramifications.

Why should YOU care? It's your money that pays for the occupation & 
illegal Israeli settlements.

"/People are scared in the U.S. to say 'wrong is wrong,' because the 
pro-Israeli lobby [AIPAC] is powerful---very powerful. Well, so what? 
For goodness sake, this is God's world. We live in a moral universe. The 
Apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists/." 
~ *Desmond Tutu*
