Palestine: Documentaries & films to increase 
awareness. By Aleksandar Ares.

With yet another round of hostilities between the military wing of Hamas & Israel, the rest of the world watches through the media & social networks. Most of us know little of beginnings of the situation between the two countries, or the region know as Palestine. This is a very good film that is not meant to give all info about the lives of Palestinian's, but a dramatic look at the choices and actions of two young men (similar to others who end up in the same place). I had first seen the trailer for Paradise Now on the DVD for Good Night and Good Luck. At the time I didn't watch it, that was much later, but I found it was quite good and moving. I hope you enjoy it, cheers.
