Welcome to Hebron
Welcome to Hebron

The first thing 17-year-old Leila asserts in Welcome to Hebron is that no one can tell her what to do. Leila is a Palestinian student living in the Israeli-occupied city of Hebron in the West Bank, and refuses to be a victim of her situation. The film documents the increasingly brutal and racist behavior of the Israeli settlers as they attempt to force Palestinian residents of the city from their homes.

Year: 2007

Time: 58 minutes
