Close, Closed, Closure

This film examines life inside the closed Gaza strip for both those imprisoned inside and those existing outside of the walls as a joint Israeli-Palestinian film crew observes the human conditions, the politics, and the economics of both sides of the electronic wired fence which encircles one of the most densely populated areas in the world. Palestinians who live under closure, and Israelis who quarrel about it, are chronicled in the film, which asks if the bloody red curtain which stands between the two can ever be lifted and if the peace process will ever succeed.
