Film director Leila Sansour returns to Bethlehem to make a film about her home town, soon to be encircled by a wall.

The film spans seven momentous years in the life of Bethlehem, revealing a city of astonishing beauty and political strife under occupation.

One of the most remarkable and moving documentaries I have seen, about this unreported story. The tragedy of the Palestinians encapsulated in the life of one family and one town- Bethlehem. See the film, then go to Bethlehem and see for yourself.
