Between The Lines

In 1917 the British Cabinet expressed support for the creation in Palestine of a homeland for the Jewish people, without prejudicing the civil and religious rights of non-Jews then living there. This is the Balfour Declaration.

In this film, people living in Israel and the presently-occupied West Bank Palestinian Territory speak about their lives a hundred years after Balfour. Their joys and struggles, opportunities and frustrations show something of the complexity and challenge faced by many in that part of the Middle East.

Filmed in Palestine and Israel in October 2017, precisely a century after the Balfour Declaration, this film highlights some of the contested issues which constantly touch the lives of ordinary people from all backgrounds.

There’s a poster, an information sheet and an information sheet for churches. To view the whole film online, or for further details or to arrange a showing, please complete the contact information below.
