Last Supper – Abu Dis
The documentary, Last Supper - Abu Dis, records the final phase of Israel's wall construction in the Palestinian Village of Abu Dis. The village is located SE of East Jerusalem, near the West Bank border. Villagers have a panoramic view of Jerusalem. While workers finalize construction, the people share their thoughts and feelings about the wall, eight-meters high, erected just meters from their homes.Once complete, the concrete wall separates neighbours; it severs access to schools and hospitals; it prevents the use of green areas; and it eliminates their breathtaking view of Jerusalem.
The wall makes the people feel like they live in prison.
