H2 is the name given to the only Palestinian city where there is a Jewish settlement. It is there, along a mile-long road, that is the holy Cave of the Patriarchs, where Jews and Muslims believe their common father, Abraham, is buried. It was here that the massacre of 1929 took place, known as “year zero” of the conflict. Through rare archival footage and interviews, the film uncovers how a single neighborhood in Hebron fuels the entire Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 54 years of military occupation told through the story of a single street.

She graduated with honors from the Sam Spiegel School of Cinema and Television and teaches documentary filmmaking there. Idit worked also as a journalist at the Haaretz newspaper.
