In the summer of 2012 we flew from Amsterdam to Tel-Aviv to meet
young Israelis and Palestinians and film their stories. We made contact
with youngsters in Modi'in, Israel and Ni'lin, Palestine. Two villages
only a few miles apart, seperated by the wall.
The project was one of our last school projects and made without
any commercial means. Additional footage and music were used,
and are included in the credits. We tried to contact all owners,
however, if there are any problems please contact us at the adress
Duration: 27 minutes
Here you can see an interactive map with the places we visited
during our project in Israel and Palestine. Click here for a larger

Thanks for the video, but this is normalization man! I like the structure but
disagree with the policy of this documentary! And I can not support being part of a normalization stuff. I am so sorry but these issues are very tense here!
People here in Palestine they won't agree with it. Let me explain it better please:
The video is very strong, but the most
important thing in documentaries is not only
the content, such as stories and so on,
most of the stories can break hearts of milions of people, but the most important thing is the message behind it.
So in your documentary, you make the person understand that two equal sides fight because of religious differences and what possibilities can be to bring them together! At least that is what I
felt when I saw it! And this is considered as normalization, or lets
say, a way of normalizing.
Do you know the history of the conflict? It is never about two equal sides. It is about an occupier and an occupied! That's how everyone who watch the video should feel!
I totally respect you Sebastian and all your work. And I know your feelings that's why I wanna help you and support you as well!
These are part of my feelings, I might be wrong or correct, but I am very happy if you could correct me if I am wrong in my feelings. Because I am not a perfect human, so I could be wrong.
Thank you very much,
