Ayed Morrar, a Palestinian community organizer, unites local Fatah and Hamas members along with Israeli supporters in an inspiring nonviolent movement to save his village of Budrus in the West Bank from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier. This compelling account of one village’s struggle tells a much larger story about what is possible in the Middle East. Ayed succeeded in doing what many believe to be impossible: he united feuding Palestinian political groups, he brought women to the heart of the struggle and he welcomed hundreds of Israelis to join this nonviolent effort.
Introduction and Q&A with Nadav Greenberg from Just Vision, producers of the documentary.
