The Road to Bethlehem: a film funded by Trust Greenbelt
Each year, Greenbelters give tens of thousands of pounds during the communion service to Trust Greenbelt. One arts project we have funded, a film called the Road to Bethlehem is now complete.
Here is what Tipping Point, have to say about the film:
"This documentary is a personal story filmed over four critical years in the life of Bethlehem. This most famous little town also happens to be Leila Sansour’s hometown. She left it as a teenager, pledging never to return. But in 2004 she went home for Christmas. The journey changed her life.The film is shot over four Christmases in the life of Bethlehem as, piece-by-piece, hundreds of slabs of concrete are lowered into place to build a wall that will seal the city from the outside world. The story is told through the eyes of the film’s director. It is her own very personal story.
To hear the latest news from Leila read her blog, or for a small taster of the film watch the clip below."
