100 years ago Britain’s Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour set in motion the vision of Israel his ‘Balfour Declaration’ had another, disastrous impact: the dispossession of the Palestinian people.

 

This film looks at other visions — including a wide range of views from occupied Palestine today, ranging from anger to attempts at envisioning a future.

 

It also shows the vision of another Englishman: the contemporary artist Banksy, who has created in Palestine a hotel that is also a remarkable satirical art installation
