In this award-winning documentary, directors Ana Nogueira and Eron Davidson take a detailed look at the apartheid analogy often used to describe the Palestinian situation. Nogueira is a white South African and Davidson is a Jewish Israeli.
Roadmap to Apartheid shows us why many Palestinians feel they are living in an Apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them. To understand the Apartheid analogy, this film provides side-by-side comparisons, noting where the analogy is useful and where it is not. The comparisons start at the beginning of the film with split-screen images showing South Africa next to the occupied Palestinian territories.
The voices of South Africans, Israelis, and Palestinians share their experiences and how those experiences have personally affected them.
We wonder, ‘is peace possible’? The closing segment in the film examines frameworks for imagining a shared future based on freedom and equality for all people. The hopeful message at the end of this film suggests that peace is, indeed, possible.
