Martyr Street

beautiful – enraging – terrifying

I don’t know how to describe this documentary.

Shelley Saywell takes you through 6 years in the life of Martyr street in Hebron – through the eyes of Palestinian and Jewish Settler children.

Such profound sadness over the actions of Abraham, and his 4,000 year old story.

How people can live and die and kill over the Book of Genesis – and over its interpretations – truly baffle me.

Not an easy watch. But sometimes we should watch those things that make us uncomfortable.
