Over a span of six years, filmmaker Neta Efrony documented an Israeli military checkpoint – on the road between East Jerusalem and Ramallah – which expanded into a massive terminal. The film is a powerful document exposing the mechanism of the occupation.
Kalandia’s checkpoint separates Palestinians from each other and denies them the freedom of association.
This film is an authentic and disturbing testimony to the daily struggle of Palestinians trying to lead normal lives.
