Fahmi Abou Ammouneh, a resident of the Palestinian refugee camp of Nusseirat, and David Biri, an Israeli soldier, lived very separate lives, but in the Gaza Strip’s Netzarim Junction, they died together. Ziv’s documentary, making use of home video and the testimony of loved ones left behind, traces the shock waves of both deaths through the respective communities of the departed, in the process creating a peerless, penetrating depiction of the Israeli-Palestinian impasse. Screening with People Power, Ziv’s insightful, inspirational examination of the historical practice of active non-violence.

Screening in the series Icarus Films at 40.
