West Bank Story

Brian and I were watching a CNN report about the Middle East. The story focused on the short film "West Bank Story" which won an Oscar. It turns out you can buy the film for $1.99 on itunes, and we have been quite entertained by it. It is a clever film, a little naughty with sensitive political and cultural issues and stereotypes, but tries to deliver a message of hope.

I do not think our travel plans are going to include the West Bank, but we did finally go to Jerusalem today. We were reminded we are in the Middle East, as it is kind of easy to forget that in Tel Aviv.

Anyway, check out the film. You will find yourself humming the themes to Hummus Hut and Kosher King.
