Directed by Gérard Maximin. Switzerland/France/Netherlands. 2008.
Just watched Faces at the Montreal Human Rights film festival. One of the producers Marc Berrebi was present and explained that film came about as an accident... the original project was to create a book of photos... they filmed the whole process in order to capture the commentary of the local people and by the end of the trip they had enough footage for a film.
We hope that this project will contribute to a better understanding between Israelis and Palestinians.
