Behind the Mountains of Dark

The peace process collapsed in the summer of 2000, and the Intifadah erupted. For two years a film crew documented the daily routine of the Alons, a family of settlers from Ofra near Ramallah. The violent incidents and the political developments are presented as perceived from their family living room. Against the mundane backdrop of familial quarrels and pleasures, the family’s sense of dread from an ever-imminent danger tightens like a ring around their necks until tragedy ultimately strikes.
