Description: For the documentary The Inner Tour, Israeli-born filmmaker Ra'anan Alexandrowicz took a group of Palestinians from the West Bank on a three-day sightseeing tour through Israel. Many of them have never crossed what they call the green line. When the tour bus stops on a beach, several of the children see the sea for the first time. One young man flirts with two young women from Italy, asking them in Arabic, Will you marry me? When they ask him, in English, what language he's speaking, he responds, Chinese. Reluctantly, he reveals that he is Palestinian. On a tour of a kibbutz, this same young man makes a videotape for his mother. Photographing a wall of photos of Jews who were killed defending the kibbutz back in the 1940s, he says, These must be the people they consider their martyrs. The Israeli bus driver jokes with an older Palestinian man who has three wives. One young woman calmly talks about her husband, who was involved in the killing of an Israeli soldier during the intifada, and has been imprisoned for life. I might have chosen some other way to fight them, she laments. One man asks a cab driver to take him to the spot where Yitzhak Rabin was killed. At the driver's prodding, he explains that when he was in prison, he met Rabin, and he describes their encounter. Later, the group visits the Tel Aviv Amusement Park. One of them states plainly, A Jew killed my father. I never expected I would just see a Jew, and walk past him like that. The Inner Tour is Alexandrowicz's second documentary feature. The Israeli-Palestinian co-production was shown as part of the 2002 New Directors/New Films Festival in New York.~ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide
