Seven documentary films by eight young directors, Palestinian and Israeli, reflecting the complexity of life in Jerusalem, in the context of the Israeli Palestinian conflict. They courageously confront the delicate and charged issues and present personal and political points of view about the reality in Jerusalem today.
There are parallel universes in the city of Jerusalem. Running alongside Egged, the Israeli national bus system, are the green and white Palestinian public buses. They pick up people traveling through Palestinian neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, and cross back and forth over the Green Line. As the buses traverse the city, they carry with them dreams from various worlds. Passengers ascend and descend, always on the go, living their lives amidst a complex of rules, walls, soldiers, and permits. Will they reach their destination?
