Budrus is a Palestinian village in the West Bank’s Occupied Territories; this rousing documentary chronicles its residents’ non-violent protests against the Israeli government’s planned security wall, which will cut off the community from its land.

The central figure is Ayed Morrar, a community organiser who welcomes peace activists from Israel and around the world to join the demonstrations.

Following events over several years, director Julia Bacha uses visual sources and interviewees (including Israeli soldiers) to sculpt a timely testimony to the power of peaceful resistance.
