  • Internationally acclaimed cinematographic event, awarded Route 181, offers an unusual vision of the inhabitants of Palestine-Israel, a common vision of an Israeli and a Palestinian.
    In the summer of 2002, for two months, Israeli film-maker Eyal Sivan and Palestinian film-maker Michel Khleifi traveled together from the south to the north of their country of birth, following a virtual line, Route 181.

    Route 181 is in fact the border outlined in Resolution 181, which was adopted by the United Nations on November 29th 1947 to partition Palestine into two states.
    Route 181, fragments of a journey in Palestine-Israel is divided into three chapters.
    Each chapter traces a part of "route 181": the south, from the port city of Ashdod to the frontiers of the Gaza Strip; the centre, from the Jewish-Arab city of Lod to Jerusalem, the north, from Rosh Ha’ayn, near the new separation wall, to the Lebanese borders.

    As they travel along this route, they meet women and men, Israeli and Palestinian, young and old, civilians and soldiers, filming them in their everyday lives. Each of these characters has their own way of evoking the frontiers that separate them from their neighbors: concrete, barbed-wire, cynicism, humor, indifference, suspicion, aggression…Frontiers have been built on the hills and in the plains, on mountains and in valleys but above all inside the minds and souls of these two peoples and in the collective unconscious of both societies.

    Route 181, Fragments of a Journey in Palestine-Israel, takes us on a disorientating journey across this tiny territory with vast ramifications.
