Child of Bethlehem
Stuart Shahid Bamforth & Zan Barberton, 2006 (18 mins)
2000 years after the birth of local boy Jesus Christ, what’s it like growing up on the mean streets of Bethlehem today? Skillfully shot by Palestinian children themselves, these self-directed vignettes show what it’s like to fall in love, fly a kite, and build a garden in a refugee camp. Refraining from sensationalism, this film shows the human side of growing up in a war zone.
