Good sided film with a story to tell

The most interesting thing about films like this is that I too make films about the world. I got the knack for it after I was in NYU, but for performance art, then to finish in Socio-linguistics. I make films about poverty, gross distortions of wealth vs. broken down humanity, just like this but not as grande a scale. The first thing that struck me was the child in the beginning playing hot dog in-front of the camera for attention and saying things to egg on his friends. Through the film he is first disjointed, immobilized, and then slowly torn to pieces.

Seeing the people in such chaos and poor conditions could make anyone hope for the best in their situtation. What we don't see is suicide bombers, the Arabic countries attacking on all fronts and creating a hopeful holocaust again after WWII. I think it is terrible what is happening to these Arabic people because they are being used as a chess piece, and they're only a rook. They don't even realize it.

It's not about holy land, it's about racial pride and land ownership and everyone cries for both sides. If the world gobbled up Israel and Palestine along with Lebanon and you name it, we'd all be in a more peaceful state. That is until someone notices there's no fake thing to fight for, and then someone else's nation state gets hammered by all sides.

The rich and powerful countries always play their dirty games of power in a metaphorical state in tiny places like this. We are billion strong and yet there's nothing we can do to stop it. No one has the power to stop the largest forces in the world, which are connected to money, not land. To stop this type of atrocity, you'd have to give up the internet, microwave ovens, and cheap oil, gas, haircare products, and your sneakers would have to look poor.

Who'se first in line to give that up? Anyone?
