Ya Shadad

Ya Shadad The Amer family live in the West Bank, in a house completely surrounded by Israeli fences and the Wall. The family is left imprisoned and struggling to adjust to an impossible reality.
In 2003 the Israeli government started building a Security Barrier between Israel and the Palestinian territories in the West Bank. But for various reasons, the Amer's home was completely surrounded and isolated, neither in Israel or Palestine. "We used to be able to see our neighbours and have a normal life...even in paradise one cannot live without people." After the family appeals to human rights organisations, the Israeli army offers to open a private gate. Father, Hani is given a key but told that if anyone else uses it, the house will be demolished. The family's deteriorating reality causes tensions to grow and youngest son Shadad starts to disappear from the house.
