Within Walls

Every mural – a dead friend, a story. The martyrs are celebrated, but what about the ones that are still alive? Omar and Mohammed live in the Dheisheh refugee camp close to Bethlehem. They paint murals of their dead friends on the walls in the camp. Every year, there are more dead – more faces on the walls. They stare at you while walking through the camp. Omar and his friends are everyday survivors in a struggle with seemingly no solution, no end. They must decide: Will they become a face on a wall themselves, remembered as martyrs, or do they step out of that vicious circle?
