Beyond the wall

 

In Beyond the wall we follow two young Palestinians who are facing the many restrictions in Palestine on a daily basis but despite everything have decided to chase their dream.
Marcel’s dream is to run the Palestine Marathon in Bethlehem in the West-Bank. He lives in Gaza and has been refused to travel to the marathon for the last two editions. Despite everything he still has hope he will get permission to leave Gaza this time.
We also travel to the West-Bank where people fight for their right to movement by organising a marathon. Rawan Bannoura a young Palestinian woman participates for the third time and helps with organising the marathon. She loves running and she wants to get her message across. From sports to politics, it’s only a small step in Palestine.
We run alongside the wall and look back on last summer’s war from which Gaza hasn’t recovered yet. Life in Palestine may look desperate but people powerful young people like Marcel and Rawan show theirs a future ahead.
