'Grassroots in Dry Lands' tells the story of three unconventional social workers united by a common vision that transcends the antagonisms between their countries. Nuha, from Nablus (Occupied Palestinian Territories), Talal, from East Amman (Jordan), and Amit, from Sderot (Israel) are empowering some of the region’s most disenfranchised, war-scarred communities in an effort to build a just and civil society.
“Thoughtful and inspiring! An uplifting viewing experience for community groups or any classroom concerned with human rights and the need for individual inner courage.” — Lynne Rogers, Al Jadid Magazine
