[ePalestine] JUST VISION: Home Front: Portraits from Sheikh Jarrah (Short videos)

Home Front is a new series of four video portraits chronicling the resolve of a neighborhood [Sheikh Jarrah, Jerusalem], and the support it receives from the most unexpected of places.

1. A Palestinian teenager whose family is forced to give up part of their home and live under the same roof as a family of settlers. He comes of age in the face of unrelenting tension with his neighbors and unexpected cooperation with Israeli allies in his backyard. (8:50min) 

2. An American-born Israeli mother who to her own surprise becomes involved in the demonstrations after her children are arrested for protesting. (8:09min) 

3. A Palestinian community organizer from Sheikh Jarrah who spearheads the involvement of local women in the movement while facing the risk of losing her own home to the settlers. (7:55min) 

4. A former Israeli soldier from a religious background who only several years after his combat service in the West Bank finds himself taking on a leading role in the protests. (7:19min) 

Sheikh Jarrah, and every inch of Palestine, struggles on,
