Gary Fields, "Ex-communicated: Enclosure landscapes in Palestine," MR Zine, January 7, 2009.

[This 28-minute video provides detailed geographical background to the non-violent actions against the theft of land and social chaos promulgated by the Israeli wall in both the West Bank and Gaza.

  These issues of ex-communication on the landscape, settlements, the wall, demolition of crops and homes are perhaps most extreme in Gaza

"Ex-communicated" was produced by Alternate Focus, a San Diego-based company founded by three directors--a Jew, a Christian, and a Muslim--to show "another side of Middle Eastern issues." They have produced more than 45 titles

The MR Zine is a project of the Monthly Review. The the current online includes an article "Jewish women occupy Israeli consulate in Toronto." The Zine version of "Ex-communicated" contains a written transcript of the film. -jlt]
