“You’re right from your side and I’m right from mine. We’re both just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind” – Bob Dylan In the Israeli-French co-production West of the Jordan River, Israeli director Amos Gitai returns to the West Bank to interview journalists, politicians, non-profit groups, and ordinary citizens attempting to resolve the seemingly never-ending dispute between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Mainly shot in Hebron, the largest Palestinian city in the West Bank, the film’s subheading “Field Diary Revisited” recalls the 1982 documentary “Field Diary” in which Gitai visited the occupied territories immediately prior to and after the Israeli army’s invasion of Lebanon. Reaction to the film’s criticism of Israel settlers, however, led to Gitai’s self-imposed 10-year-exile in France.
