The Other Jerusalem

Palestinian farmer Khaled is losing his home. Counsellor Ziad is facing clients in despair. House demolitions, city planning, demography are instruments in a bitter fight over Jerusalem. This is the story of those moving in and those fighting to stay. This is East Jerusalem 50 years after the Israeli occupation.
