Synopsis

Checkpoint represents an investigation into everyday life in Israel and the West Bank: the attrition of occupation, the threat of terrorism. The film does not attempt to dissect the political situation, rather, to engage with those that it affects. It is a story of tragedy and brutality but also hope, wit, beauty and music.
