Description

"'The Crossroad' is the story of the intersection between the main Gaza highway trafficked by Palestinians and the road from Israel to the Jewish settlement of Netzarim. This crossroad has gained infamy over the past few months not only for the number of people killed there, but also for being the place where 12-year-old Mohammad al-Dura was killed in his father's arms - a television image which has come to symbolize the current conflict. ... We hold up the crossroad as an emblem of the wider Israeli-Palestinian conflict. By using two mothers - one a Jewish settler and the other a Palestinian resident - as our main characters, our story makes some sense of a conflict that seems to make no sense at all."
