From the creators of Budrus, My Neighbourhood chronicles the story of Palestinian teenager Mohammed El Kurd as half of his home in East Jerusalem is taken over by Israeli settlers. When Israeli activists arrive to join local residents in protests against the eviction, Mohammed comes of age in the face of unrelenting tension with his neighbours and unexpected cooperation with Israeli allies in his backyard.Through Mohammed’s personal story, My Neighbourhood goes beyond the sensational headlines that normally dominate discussions of Jerusalem and captures voices rarely heard, of those striving for a just and equitable future in the city.
My Neighbourhood recently had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, and will be premiering in Europe at the upcoming Sheffield Doc/Fest in June. It is the latest production by Just Vision, a team of Palestinian, Israeli, North and South American filmmakers, journalists and human rights advocates dedicated to telling the stories of Israelis and Palestinians pursuing freedom, dignity, security and peace using nonviolent means.
