The Inner Tour

A group of Palestinian tourists on a three-day sightseeing trip to Israel. The tourists come from the Occupied Territories. The windows of the bus open up onto an unknown portrait of Israel. And looking from the outside in, we get an unusual glimpse into the very heart of Palestinian society. Filmed in 2000, just months before the outbreak of the second Intifada, this is simple human tale of a weekend jaunt across the border that becomes an unfinished journey traversing time and criss-crossing between the emotional recollections of a vanished past and the harsh realities of the present day. This is the homeland, but they are visiting it as tourists. This is the state that has occupied them for decades, but it is also a country, just like any other, with people not very different from them.
