Street Under Fire

Directed by: Amir Tal, Kobi Yonatan
40 Minutes, 2001

The Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo has been the target of sniper attacks from the adjacent Palestinian village of Beit Jala since the beginning of the new Intifada. This timely documentary features interviews with neighbors talking about their personal reactions to their plight. It also presents the Israeli government’s reaction-positioning tanks in streets of their once peaceful neighborhood. As we watch images of mortar attacks on Beit Jala and the continuous shelling of Gilo we are made witnesses to the human consequences of the current hostilities.
