COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Quelques mois avant le début de la seconde Intifada, vingt Palestiniens des territoires occupés entreprennent une visite de trois jours en Israël. Ils ont obtenu un laissez-passer collectif pour traverser la fameuse "ligne verte" qui sépare Israël des territoires occupés. Un voyage en bus chargé d’émotions. En effet, ce ne sont pas là des touristes ordinaires: Israël est le pays qui les a exilés, l’État qui occupe leurs terres.
À la frontière libanaise, un passager retrouve brièvement sa famille. Un autre rend hommage à Yitzhak Rabin, sur les lieux de son assassinat. Un vieux retrouve les ruines de la tombe de son père. Tour à tour, au fil du voyage, chacun raconte son histoire.
The Inner Tour — Voyage en terre perdue relate avec sobriété le drame des Palestiniens.

A few months before the outbreak of the second intifada, twenty Palestinians from the Occupied Territories embark on a three-day bus tour of Israel. The journey is charged with emotion; these are no ordinary tourists, although sometimes they behave like ones, sunbathing and sightseeing. This is Israel: the land from which they were exiled; the nation that erased their past and renamed their cities; the state that holds them under the vise-grip of occupation. One passenger weeps as he is briefly reunited with his family through the barbed-wire fence of the Lebanese border. Another passenger pays his respects to Yitzhak Rabin at the assassination site. An elderly passenger finds the ruins of his father’s grave. The filmmaker makes no judgements, letting the participants speak for themselves. A compelling, enlightening glimpse at a rarely seen side of the Palestinian experience. (A Palestinian-Israeli co-production)
