My Neighborhood

My Neighborhood

Abby Zimet

The award-winning film My Neighborhood tells the story of 11-year-old Mohammed El Kurd, a Palestinian youth who lives with his family in the East Jerusalem area of Sheikh Jarrah - until Israeli settlers take over part of his home. A production of Just Vision, a team of Palestinian, Israeli and American filmmakers/advocates, and a testament to the power of supposedly warring  sides working together to right wrongs, the film documents the growing protests of Palestinians to their eviction joined, much to their surprise, by Israeli activists. Inspiring. You can watch the whole film here.

A free and independent press is essential to the health of a functioning democracy
