Indepth exploratin between the parallels of Sauth African and Israeli occupation, the film is produces by Ana Nogueira of South Africa, and  Eron Davidson a Jewish Israeli.

Very interesting write-up if anyone's interested.

  'The sheer breadth of the aspects of Israeli and South African apartheid that the film explores and compares will likely exceed the expectations of many viewers.

'  Perhaps more importantly, the film includes just as prominently the voices of many ordinary South Africans and Palestinians who are experts on apartheid in their own right, by virtue of suffering, surviving and resisting it through the course of their own daily lives. The voices of ordinary Jewish Israelis are also included, exploring how Israeli apartheid offers them all manner of colonial privileges while erecting physical and psychological barriers that largely prevent them from observing its direct impact upon the indigenous Palestinians.. 

'  Every time you destroy someone’s house, you destroy their life," says an unnamed Palestinian man who has experienced this six times firsthand. "You kill that person, and they become like they are neither dead nor alive."

In this context, touting one author as 'a Jewish Israeli' is racist. 


BTW, how does Eric davven?

That is essentially a movie review by an 'activist' blogger:  it is useful in that it shows how one extremist uses rhetoric like 'colonial priviledges' to distort reality in an attempt to conform it to his chosen perceptions.
