Sometimes I'm afraid, Sometimes I hit by Yuval Auron, Israel
The people of Nabi Saleh, in the West Bank, have been holding weekly protests against the Israeli occupation for four years. Through a series of interviews with the village's children, we learn of their unique and personal perspective of the struggle: how they cope with the constant state of violence around them, as they see their parents being arrested and family members being killed, and if and when they see some hope in their situation.
Yuval Auron was born in Ramat Gan and grew up in the village of Kfar Shalom, which literally means "Peace village", a small village of both Palestinian and Jewish residents.
Yuval is a political activist, focusing mainly on the Palestinian struggle. In 2009, he spent a month and a half in a military prison after refusing to enlist to the army. He currently resides in Tel Aviv and studies theatre in Nisan Nativ.
Sometimes I'm Afraid, Sometimes I Hit is his first attempt at filmmaking.
