Storyline

HOPE IN A SLING SHOT is a hard-hitting documentary about the ongoing conflict between Palestinians and Israelis on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. It is a film about power and control, exploitation and dispossession, injustice and persecution. Through dynamic maps, statistics, interviews (with lawyers, ex-prisoners, Israeli soldiers, wounded teenagers, farmers and settlers) and the personal experiences of the filmmaker just what is happening to Palestinians and their human rights as their daily lives and opportunities are increasingly restricted by the actions of Israeli soldiers and civilians. The film also explores the way in which the United Nations and other countries are unable - or unwilling - to halt these incursions. Written by Andrew Pike

Great Movie
7 May 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The movie projects the producer's passion for justice and fair go. Inka provides a unique insight into the situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. She ventures to uncharted territories and talks to those who are directly affected by the conflict. The most striking parts in the movie is the footage with the soldiers at the checkpoints. Also the images of the illegal Wall that Israel is building in the OPT. The Wall has caused a lot of hardship to the Palestinians and have been an obstacle to any progress in piece negotiations. Its impact will linger for many years to come and I predict it will fall like all other walls in history. Inka helps the viewer understand the impact of the 8 meter Wall on the local population. The documentary is well researched and put together. Highly recommended.
