    The Present

    ★★★★½

    This film shattered my heart into a million pieces. It conveys what it's like to live under Israeli occupation and the humiliation Palestinians face at the checkpoints by Israeli soldiers. If the simple scenes conveyed here aren't an indication of the cruelty of the Israeli state towards Palestinians then I don't know what is.

    It really packs a punch in just 24 minutes.

    Scavenger Hunt #37 - 19. The late, great Roger Ebert described movies as machines that generate empathy. Watch a movie about a kind of person or group for whom you would like to have more empathy.

    the kid was kinda annoying but i found it cute and i think it captures what it truly means to be a child with a raving curiosity about the world around them, or their world specifically.
