Hurdle

1 x 60 / 1 x 87 HD

This award-winning film reveals an important and intimate story emerging from the hearts and actions of Palestinian youth as the Israeli military occupation of the Palestinian territories reached its 50th year.

 

This new generation responds to a world of walls, checkpoints and arrests in an unexpected and inspiring way. Hurdle ’s protagonists, Sami and Mohammad, begin teaching the creative practices of parkour and photography, respectively, to the youth of their communities as a means to overcome the personal and political obstacles that often feel inescapable. Though these young men are separated by a wall, they are united in leading the next generation toward freedom and self-determination through creative practices.

 

With breathtaking visuals, intimate access and action-packed scenes, Hurdle provides audiences with a fresh look at an old conflict. The next generation must decide what to do with the wars and walls they inherit and, ultimately, find ways to practice their freedom. With defiant creativity they prove that no matter the height of the obstacle, one can always climb.
