Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish recruited eight writers from around the world—including China, Europe, the U.S. (Russell Banks), and South Africa (Breyten Breytenbach)—to tour various “high places of spirituality” that have also been sites of Israeli aggression, and Samir Abdallah and Jose Reynes record their statements and discussions as well as their travels. This 2003 French documentary is more effective as a collective and sometimes eloquent act of witness than as a source of fresh information. In English and subtitled Arabic, Hebrew, French, Spanish, and Mandarin. 80 min.
