Beyond Borders 

By Sharon WEILL, Bartolomeo CONTI, Richard PROST (52′ ). A production of 8 et Plus Productions with European Union (Human Rights Commission), University of Malta

We are Israelis, Palestinians, Lebanese, Turks, Armenians, Moroccans and Cypriots, on the whole representing a significant part of the Mediterranean world. In 2001, we met as students during a year-long Masters of Human Rights program in Malta. The Middle East is crossed by multiple fault lines that create a state of permanent tension, often degenerating in open conflict.  This situation creates not only a strict separation between countries, geopolitical borders, but also psychological barriers that run deeply between the peoples.
