At 270 minutes, this documentary is no easy feat. But why should a film chronicling not only a road trip but a history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict be easy? The two filmmakers, one Israeli and one Palestinian, travel through spaces fraught with tension and violence, examining historic and present borders and confronting the physical barriers to coexistence. The film also emphasizes these barriers in the words and actions of people they meet along the way.
