Storyline

Judah & Mohammad is an intimate portrait of two teenage boys, one from Israel and the other from Palestine, filmed over 18 months. As their personal development is shaped by the conflict that goes on around them and as violence in the Middle East reaches boiling point, the film features access to the pair's classrooms, where history lessons are as much about the present as past events. Written by Channel 4 <viewerenquiries@channel4.co.uk>

Steering a fine line
10 June 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Any documentary comparing the Israeli and Palestinian positions in the longest running conflict of our times is bound to stir up some controversy. There will always be those who say it was too partisan to one side or the other. The situations of Judah and Mohammad are only examples and not directly comparable. For a start Mohammad is a part of what appears to be a functioning nuclear family while Judah lives with his single mother and experiences the hardships of a difficult family situation. Nonetheless by the end of the film some clearcut facts have emerged to inform us of what is going on here. Mohammad demonstrates no preparedness to come to any reconciliation with his Israeli neighbours. At school there is one doctrinaire position - the Palestinians were expelled from their lands in 1948 and they intend to get them all back including Jerusalem, whatever the cost. In Judah's classroom there is open discussion with differing viewpoints being given and a preparedness to seek out a peaceful solution to this age old conflict. The director has avoided giving us a one-sided polemic and hopefully those who see this film will perceive some of the underlying realities that make it almost impossible to resolve this dispute.
