Event description

Description

100 years ago Britain's Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour set in motion the vision of Israel........

His 'Balfour Declaration' had another, disastrous impact: the dispossession of the Palestinian people.

This film looks at other visions -- including a wide range of views from occupied Palestine today, ranging from anger to attempts at envisioning a future. It also shows the vision of another Englishman: the contemporary artist Banksy, who has created in Palestine a hotel that is also a remarkable satirical art installation.

How do today's Palestinians live behind the 'security wall'? What change must come?
