Bil’in My Love: Directed by Shai Carmeli Pollak and produced by Claudius Films

The village of Bil’in is about to lose over a half of its territory to the Security Barrier and to the Jewish settlement of Modi’in Elite. The residents of the village decide to embark on a struggle against the construction of the barrier and are joined by international and Israeli activists. The director, Shai Carmeli-Pollak accompanies the village’s struggle for over a year, focusing on two central figures: Mohamed, a member of the village’s local committee against the barrier, and Wagee, farmer and father of ten, who is losing the majority of his land to the barrier and to the settlement.
