Of Land and Bread

A raw account of life in occupied Palestine.

In 2007, human rights organisation B’Tselem launched their Camera Project to enable volunteers in the West Bank to document their own lives under Israeli occupation. Of Land and Bread consists solely of raw footage recorded with these donated cameras, showing first-hand the lived experiences of Palestinians. Each vignette captures an incident – from petty humiliation to violent assault – casually perpetrated by a soldier, a policeman or a settler. Without any voiceover or mediation, this kaleidoscope of everyday injustice conveys the reality of institutionalised state terror and the impunity that emboldens its perpetrators. Palestinians lie on the receiving end of a project of dispossession of land, resources, and culture; Of Land and Bread stands as a bold act of defiance – and a strident call for solidarity.
