“Behind the Fence” presents the first intifada as an important phase in the Palestinians’ struggle against Israeli occupation. It focuses on the failures and victories of those living in the Dheisheh refugee camp. They explain how their faith in liberation and their rejection of their miserable living conditions have helped them develop ways of dismantling the walls of the occupation.

Tamara ABU LABAN was born in the Dheisheh refugee camp near Bethlehem. She read media studies in Egypt and received a Masters in film at the Red Sea Institute of Cinematic Arts in Jordan.
