IN THE DESERT is a diptych documentary about two realities, two families in one land. Both parts have a dialectic relationship to each other, an inherent tension that exists by their very juxtaposition: “Omar's Dream” is about a Palestinian family; “Avidan's Dream” is about a Jewish one. Both families live in an area of the West Bank that is governed by the Palestinian Authority but controlled by the Israeli Army – which officially prohibits anyone from settling there. The two families live on opposite hills, but never meet. Both men discover their lives are determined by a personal struggle to define who they really are rather than by a political conflict. IN THE DESERT is a profound journey trying to defy what is commonly known about the Israeli Palestinian conflict. (Courtesy of Ruth Films: http://www.ruthfilms.com/in-the-desert.html)
