In 2002, the Israeli government began the construction of a 700 km-long wall in the West Bank on the Palestinian side of the “Green Line”. Two years later,  the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in its Advisory Opinion declared the construction of a wall within occupied Palestinian territory illegal. The wall is now near completion and Israel faces no sanctions.

Inspired and produced by a former UN expert on monitoring the humanitarian impact of the Wall in the West Bank, this compelling documentary traces the broken promises and a tangled web of law, politics and brute force. The filmmaker documents the consequences of the Wall on the people whose daily lives are affected, along with candid testimonies from internationally renowned law experts, ICJ judges,diplomats and the Israeli military officer who built the Wall.

The film won Special Mention and  the Audience Award at Al Ard Film Festival, Italy.

Organised in collaboration with the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice and Palestine Education Network.
