200 Meters

Friday, 27th August – 21.00

Mustafa and his wife Salwa come from two different villages that are only 200 meters apart. The problem: the Israeli wall separates the two villages. Salwa lives with the children on the Israeli side, while Mustafa lives on the Palestinian-controlled side. When Mustafa's son is in hospital, he wants to do everything he can to get to him on the Israeli side. At the checkpoint, his passage is refused and so Mustafa resorts to an illegal crossing, turning the 200-meter distance into a 200-kilometre odyssey.
