"Jerusalem ... The east side story"
“The air above Jerusalem
is filled with prayers and dreams
Like air above cities with heavy industry
Hard to breathe
From time to time a new shipment of history arrives"
The latest shipment of history is the Israeli
occupation. In 1948, the western part of the city fell under Israeli
control; in 1967, the eastern part fell under Israeli occupation.
Since then, Israel has pursued a policy of Judaizing the city,
aiming to achieve “Jewish demographic superiority.” Part of this
policy is to drive Palestinian Muslims and Christians out of the
city; denying their presence, history, and ties to the land.
The documentary takes you on a journey exposing
Israel’s policy to gain supremacy and hegemony over the city and its
inhabitants. It also touches on the future of the city: Jerusalem is
the key to peace; without Jerusalem, there is no peace for anyone.
The film includes interviews with Palestinian
and Israeli leaders, human rights activists and political analysts.
