Meet the children that are the third generation of the occupation, they’re feisty and political, but also childish (or teen-terrible) and funky. Pawns in a life they did not choose, forced to become adults before their time, hundreds are in prison with very little judicial support. This award-winning feature opens a door into Palestinian families whose children are in the forefront of the resistance movement.

“A 12-year-old from the West Bank, being released from prison… welcomed by a bunch of reporters with cameras and microphones, who swarm around her, fishing for a political statement. But of course, the shocked girl cannot give one to them: she’s only 12 and just wants to be with her family.” Vladan Petkovic, Cineuropa
