Made by Hala AsSayed
Chapter 7 in the film series chronicling Al Aqaba, a West Bank Palestinian village determined to build new homes as the best way to assure their village's existence despite Israeli Army demolition orders against 97% of their homes, the mosque, medical clinic and kindergarten. Al Aqaba is not alone â€” according to the Israeli Human Rights group, BIMKOM, there are over 12,500 demolition orders outstanding against Palestinian homes and shops on the land they own in the 60% of the West Bank controlled solely by Israel.
