Editorial Reviews


... Light at the End of the Tunnel takes a more serious approach, dealing with the neglected but important social issue of how the half-million Palestinians who have spent time in Israeli prisons adjust to life outside after their release. The detention of such a large percentage of the population, often under the draconian rule (inherited from the British) of administrative detention, whereby a person can be held without charge for six months, is one of the heaviest burdens on Palestinian society, impoverishing families by removing their main breadwinner, damaging emotional bonds within families, and turning individuals into people who find it nearly impossible to resume a normal life. In this film, former prisoners tell their own stories, without elaboration or commentary, with heart-rending effect. Palestinians tend to assume a controlled and dignified demeanour when speaking publicly, even when talking of terrible personal experiences, and the graceful restraint of the film's interviewees enhances the poignancy of their testimony.

Product Description

According to many sources, over half a million Palestinians have been arrested and imprisoned by Israel since 1967. This film reflects on some of the problems that Palestinian detainees face after their release from Israeli (and Palestinian Authority) prisons. Six ex-detainees, two women and four men, talk about their life after being released. Some were unable to bridge the gap between them and their families, some feel that they came out from one prison only to enter another. (Language: Arabic with English and French subtitles)
