between Tijuana and San Diego. Along the way it visits the reasons for the
fence with local and global perspectives on its effectiveness. Migrants,
deportees, minutemen, coyotes, environmentalists, writers, and academics

There are many lessons to draw from the South African experience of
Apartheid relevant to conflicts all over the world. Roadmap to Apartheid
explores in detail the apartheid comparison as it is used in the enduring
Israel-Palestine conflict. As much an historical document of the rise and
fall of apartheid, the film shows us why many Palestinians feel they are
living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people
around the world agree with them.

Featuring interviews with South Africans, Israelis and Palestinians,
Roadmap to Apartheid winds its way through the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and
inside Israel moving from town to town and issue to issue to show why the
apartheid analogy is being used with increasing potency. It analyzes the
similar historical narratives of the Jewish people and the Afrikaaners to
the tight relationship the two governments shared during the apartheid
years, and everything in between. The effectiveness of the Boycott,
Divestment and Sanctions movement that helped end apartheid in South Africa
is also compared to its effectiveness in the Israeli context to end the
occupation, and bring justice and dignity to all.
