Khaled Jarrar’s 2012 documentary Infiltrators will be screened on 14 November at 7:30 pm in The Yard, the outdoor venue of Alserkal Avenue. The screening will take place during Art Week (13-19 November), coinciding with Abu Dhabi Art.
Jarrar’s award-winning documentary looks at the hidden passageways that allow ordinary Palestinians to circumvent or pass through the labyrinth of Israeli ‘security’ apparatuses that divide communities and limit everyday mobility in the occupied West Bank. Mirroring the movement of his protagonists, Jarrar risks being caught by Israeli police and soldiers as he takes the same secret routes that serve as a means of entry and exit for Palestinians who travel to work, smuggle basic goods, or attempt to receive medical care.
