Replay Revenge - Israel Palestine satire documentary

A Tongue-in-Cheek Look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the eyes of an English-Irish-Israeli-Palestinian filmmaker ( dated but perhaps useful in the light of current events )

It is not Religion, nor the people, but the leaders who are fighting.. SYNOPSIS:
Basil Khalil, an English-Irish-Israeli-Palestinian young filmmaker shows us a tongue-in-cheek, entertaining and refreshing approach to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. he leaves his Café day-job in peaceful Scotland and heads back to Israel and Palestine, where he was brought-up, to make his first feature film ‘Replay Revenge’. His authored and, satirical take targets a [younger] audience that’s ignorant of the conflict.


Basil drives around Israel and Palestine showing the human point-of-view on the conflict, where people, victims and party-animals try to stay sane and away from the sense of revenge, living a ‘normal’ life, ignoring the war around them as they find their own sense of humour within that bloody mess; always keeping in mind that terrorism is just round the corner.
On his journey, Basil constantly crosses the line, uncovering the urge for revenge and learns about the true, yet cynical face of ‘terrorism’, as it shows on both sides. Coming to the conclusion that; it’s not Religion, nor the people, but the leaders who are fighting!

He meets a dead terrorist, a DJ, Israeli soldiers, a One-legged Palestinian, a frustrated politician an Israeli-Arab with large appetite for pork, and many more.
