by Malihe Razazan
A scene from the documentary film "Infiltrators"Palestinian visual artist Khaled Jarrar’s award-winning documentary film, Infiltrators, documents how Palestinians defy Israel’s twenty-six-foot apartheid wall by jumping over the wall or going through underground tunnels. Thousands of Palestinians who take the harrowing journey for work, a short visit with loved ones or medical treatment they cannot receive in the West Bank. In this journey, they risk arrest, injury or even death. "Infiltrators" will be screened on 5 October 2013 as part of the third annual Palestine Film and Arts Festival in Washington DC, which kicks off on 28 September and will run through 8 October. Khaled Jarrar's acclaimed film 'Infiltrators' will be showcased on 5 October at 7 PM, followed by Q&A with Professor Noura Erakat. I spoke with Khaled about the making of Infiltrators and why it took him four years to finish it.
