From Balfour to Banksy

Miranda Pinch is pleased to release, for free viewing, the final cut of the film: From ‘Balfour to Banksy: Divisions and Visions in Palestine’ (2020). Written and Directed by Martin Buckley. Produced by Miranda Pinch. Filmed and edited by Alexander Wilks.

This film looks at other visions — including a wide range of views from occupied Palestine today, ranging from anger to attempts at envisioning a future.

It also shows the vision of another Englishman: the contemporary artist Banksy, who has created in Palestine a hotel that is also a remarkable satirical art installation.

How do today’s Palestinians live, behind the ‘security wall’? What change must come?

Please share widely. https://www.balfourtobanksy.com/
