Two Blue Lines
United States, 2015, 98 min.
In English, Arabic, Hebrew with English subtitles.
Shot over a period of 25 years, Two Blue Lines examines the human and political situation of Palestinian people from the years prior to the creation of Israel to the present day. By primarily featuring the narratives of Israelis whose positions run counter to their country's official policy, filmmaker Tom Hayes provides a portrait of the ongoing conflict not often depicted in mainstream media.
I am neither Israeli nor Palestinian. As a full-blooded American “ethnic mutt,” I am often asked why I have spent so many years documenting the human rights situation of Palestinian people. My engagement grew out of work that I did in the Cambodian refugee camps back in the early eighties. When I finished that work, I stumbled on the granddaddy of all refugee groups, the Palestinian refugees. I wound up making a documentary titled Native Sons: Palestinians in Exile. Since then, as the situation of Palestinians both inside and outside of Palestine has deteriorated, I have been unable to look away, and have kept my shoulder to the stone, bearing witness to, and recording their plight.
