2nd FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival

Dir: Julia Bacha
2009, 70 min / USA, Israel
English, Hebrew and Arabic / English Subtitles

Ayed Morrar mobilized the entire Palestinian village of Budrus and Israeli peace activists to peacefully protest against the separation wall. Palestinian native Ayed Morrar brings members of Fatah and Hamas and Israeli citizens together in their peaceful struggle against the Israeli separation barrier, which is to be erected near his village Budrus. Without indulging in self-complacency or romanticizing peace, Budrus shows how successful the actions of this peacemaker are in the Palestinian community.

Awards: Golden Butterfly A Matter of ACT Human Rights Award went to Ayed Morrar portrayed in Budrus at Movies That Matter Festival 2011.
