This film documents a 10-day journey that the artists took through
Palestine, teaching and performing non-violent resistance through the arts.
The tour included M1 of Dead Prez, Shadia Mansour, Marcel Cartier, Mazzi of
S.O.U.L. Purpose, DJ Vega Benetton, Lowkey, .... etc.
The group stayed in the heart of Balata refugee camp at the Yafa Cultural
Center in Nablus. There, they witneeded night raids, toured places like
Hebron where there are separate roads for Arabs and Jews, met families of
Palestinians who have been slain as well as jailed, wounded, and
humiliated. The group visits Bi'lin where they get shot at and teargassed
and experience first-hand what it feels like living under occupation.
