Award winning short film "Over the Wall" by director Roy Zafrani and producers Mor Cohen and Nami Melumad takes the web by the storm, as tension over Israeli-Palestinian crisis surges.
Two Friends. One Border.
Exploring the rare friendship that develops between an Israeli boy and a Palestinian boy who meet through a hole in the separation wall, the film offers a message of unity and solidarity, and attempts to present a different take on the conflict, an alternative perhaps, through the hopeful eyes of the two boys.
