Bil'in habibti

Shai Carmeli Pollak
bilin habibti

Palestinians in the village of Bil'in try to fight the occupation of their land non-violently. Bil'in My Love shows this resistance but also the start of friendship between Palestinians and Israelis.

Bil'in is facing to be divided by the Israeli safety fence and more than half of the village is about to be absorbed by a neighbouring Jewish settlement. The villagers confront the Israeli army with creative, weekly demonstrations and direct actions. The army replies with arrests, teargas and bullets. Armed with a camera, the Israeli director Pollak comes to Bil'in as an activist. During his stay, Bil'in turns into the symbol of resistance against the safety fence and the Israeli occupation.
