A nonpartisan account of a tense year in the lives of Israelis settlers and of the Palestinians and Israelis who oppose them. This unprecedented film challenges conventional views about the Palestinian-Israel conflict, West Bank settlements, and the two state solution.
*Israel has its haters and supporters. Holyland shows us a Palestinian mayor that anyone would want for their town and a rabbi loved by both Arabs and Jews. We get to meet the Jewish settlers who are frequently viewed as the main problem and also angry young Arabs.These are not fictional characters. They are real people followed over the course of a year and we get to share their joys and sorrows. The West Bank is not a pretty country in the usual sense but it has a stark beauty that is captured by the wonderful photography.
