“internationals in Palestine”
Travelling to Palestine to join a movement whose main objective is to protest through a non violent resistance against an occupation which lasts for more than 57 years sounds like madness hard to explain.
But even so, more and more people do it every year. The ISM is one of the groups which work in Palestine supporting civil non violent resistance against Israeli occupation. “Internationals in Palestine” is a documentary film which shows how international and Israeli activists from ISM, jointly with Palestinians, raise military barricades, stop jeeps and bulldozers, challenge soldiers who occupy homes in cities under curfew, and in short, disarmed they put up in front of one of the most powerful army worldwide.
Their example shows the compromise with human rights and the joint action between Israeli, Palestinian and international activists against the endless violence of the Israeli Government.

Nablus, la ciudad fantasma

Palestine, 2004, 32'
An inside view from the streets of the events that took place over one week in the Palestinian city of Nablus in August 2004. The camera takes us into the world of children who play at being soldiers in an army that has stones and motives as its only weapons. In the midst of Israeli gunshots and bombs, a dialogue takes place with soldiers who sometimes seem more frightened than their own victims. The camera, with a group of international activists and paramedics, follows the soldiers as they search the city house by house. The international presence also acts as an "occupier-witness" of the zone of impunity in which Israel regularly acts.
