In Occupied Palestinian territories, women portray the restrictions to their freedom of movement. This film* describes the situation faced by Palestinian women behind the separation Wall. Through participatory video it is possible to see how 'development' is not only about income, health or education; it also entails a feeling of freedom, dignity and hope.

*This film was made through the participatory visual method 'participatory video':
A participatory method through which people and communities can visually communicate their aspirations. When working with marginalised groups it is an empowering process, enabling people to take action for solving their own problems and communicating this to decision-makers, their communities, families and wider public. It is an iteratively evolving group process, which engages participants in video recording and playback activities over a sustained time period.
