Infiltrators

Khaled Jarrar, Documentary, 70 min, Arabic with English subtitles, Palestine/ Lebanon and United Arab of Emirates, 2012

The checkpoint is closed: “Detour, detour!” shouts a taxi driver, announcing the beginning of yet another uncertain search for a way around the barriers curtailing Palestinian movement in the West Bank.

“Infiltrators” is a “road movie” that chronicles the daily travails of Palestinians of all backgrounds as they seek routes through, under, around and over a bewildering matrix of barriers. The film follows a high stake “game” of cat and mouse with a handheld video camera.

The restrictions on movement that we are witnessing today is meant to be temporary. But what about the daily reality of the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, who have been facing severe limitations and restrictions since decades?

The film has won the Muhr Arab Documentary Prize, the Special Jury Prize and the International Critics Prize at Dubai International Film Festival 2012; it has also won the FIPRESCI Prize for Best Director of Documentary Films. “Infiltrators” received an official selection at Chicago International Film Festival and Edinburgh International Film Festival.
