Of Land and Bread
Daily, brutal meetings between Palestinians and Israelis in occupied territories.
A man stuck in a barbed wire fence has been caught in the act. On his way up a roof to remove a Palestinian flag, he is confronted by the occupant of the house, with a camera. To the sound of cheers from the Israeli settlers in the street below, the uninvited guest insists that the land, and even the house, ultimately belong to him.
Of land and bread is composed of such moments: daily, often brutal meetings between the occupied and the occupied. Through Palestinian eyes, we witness house demolitions, random arrests and nightly house raids, in all their daily brutal reality. The seriousness of the occupation becomes visible in a mosaic of stories, captured on camera by Palestinians in the West Bank and collected by the Israeli peace organization B’Tselem.
