My cousin lent me this documentary that chronicles the life of a young Palestinian boy and his friends. It’s riveting, shocking and so upsetting. I liked watching the boys and getting a view of this conflict through the eyes of a child. I was quite angry with the adults in his life. His mother seemed so passive and the militia men were using the boys and encouraging them to fight and be martyred, when I wanted them to say, “This is an adult job. You’re job is to be a kid, a student, a son.”
The filmmakers wanted to make a pair of films one with Palestinian children and another with Isreali’s but events in the production made that impossible. While the movie is so unsettling, it is well worth watching.
