Borders

A border is a place where one strip of land ends and another one begins. The people that live there develop their own additional borders of fear and acceptance, danger, love and faith, boundaries that represent a longing for freedom and others that are obscured. Israel shares 1,171 kilometers of border with four countries. This film roves the lines between Israel and it’s neighbors, along with the people living in these charged and sensitive areas – from war-torn Southern Lebanon, that bustles with machinations to the Syrian border – stark and threatening – that only a solitary Druze bride from the Golan Heights can cross; From the border with the autonomous Palestinian Authority, filled with hatred and hope, to the Jordan River. Among the roadblocks, barbed wire, minefields and crossing points live Israelis, Lebanese, Jordanians and Palestinians.
