As Israeli-Palestinian tensions continue to escalate, Bacha’s inspiring film about the Palestinian village of Budrus (population 1,500) and its unlikely hero reveals the power of ordinary people to peaceably fight for extraordinary change. When a new Israeli-built wall threatened to lop off part of the border town, Ayed Morrar—a simple family man—was inspired to act. Soon rival parties Fatah and Hamas, Western activists, and even groups of Israelis were united peaceably behind Morrar and the citizens of Budrus, providing a galvanizing glimpse into the power of ordinary people to peaceably fight for justice in one of the most war-torn parts of the world. “This year’s must-see documentary.”—Nicholas D. Kristof, New York Times. (82 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Encounter Point (06).

Winner of the Audience Award, San Francisco International Film Festival.
