West Bank Story

I don't know what I think about this Oscar winning short film, but I am putting it out there so that you Main Issue readers can have a look and make up your own minds about whether such films are helpful in their broad message of common humanity and building bridges for peace or are just noise that do not help the specific debate over justice and human rights.

Update: Unfortunately, the film was taken down from youtube, but there still remains pieces of it in this edited form along with a so-so dialog between Palestinians and Israelis at the end:

My apologies, but I did not watch this yet.
I'm in a coffee shop, and it would be rude.

However, I think that YOU should watch a little film called Das Rad, about some rock (the heavy, inanimate thing) buddies.

Also, I miss you.
