Walled Citizen

A Palestinian filmmaker attempts to explore the planet as a backpacker defying the restrictions of movement imposed on him as a holder of one of the world’s weakest ranking passports.

Over a period of 3 years, Sameer Qumsiyeh travels with his camera from Palestine to Europe to the Canary Islands and Ecuador, documenting his encounters with other freedom seekers, wanderers, refugees, immigrants, indigenous communities and nomads all of whom are facing the physical and non-physical borders, barriers and walls that are erected between people in our modern time. This is an amazingly important film which totally transcends the genre. We are proud to showcase it here for its UK debut.
