About the film and Just Vision:
Hailed in the New York Times as "this year's must-see documentary," Budrus tells the story of a Palestinian community organizer who succeeds in uniting Palestinians from all political factions together with Israelis in an unarmed movement to save his village from destruction from Israel's Separation Barrier. Success looks improbable until his 15-year-old daughter Iltezam leads a women's contingent that quickly moves to the front lines.
The film has won numerous awards at top international festivals, including Berlin, Tribeca and Jerusalem, and has been featured in major press outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Economist, Newsweek, Charlie Rose, MSNBC, Israel's Channel 2 News, The Forward, the Jewish Week and others. It is now playing before a variety of Israeli and Palestinian audiences in the region and is showing in theaters, universities and communities across the US. It has also recently been screened for Members of Congress and their staff on Capitol Hill, at the UN and in the European Parliament.
Budrus is the latest documentary film by Just Vision (www.justvision.org), a nonprofit organization led by a team of Israeli, Palestinian, North and South American journalists, human rights advocates and filmmakers devoted to raising awareness about Israeli and Palestinian civilians working nonviolently to resolve the conflict and end the occupation. Through films and multimedia resources Just Vision highlights the work of these visionaries and aims to increase their power and legitimacy within their own societies and around the world.
