Line Halvorsen, a Norwegian who lives and works in the West Bank, directed this sobering portrait of a group of teenage boys living in an overcrowded refugee camp in Bethlehem. Candid, articulate, and reckless, they taunt Israeli soldiers and pelt tanks with rocks as a way of honoring their ever-widening circle of fallen comrades. Halvorsen’s treatment of them is distinguished by its close-range observation and lack of romanticism, which underscore the teens’ painful self-awareness: they admit that their actions are futile but are still committed to the cycle of stoning, early martyrdom, and revenge. In Arabic with subtitles. 2003, 51 min.
