Walled Citizen

 

Synopsis
Holding his personal camera and one of the lowest ranking passports in the world, a Palestinian filmmaker attempts to defy the imposed movement restrictions and explore the planet as a backpacker. Over the period of three years, Sameer travels from Palestine to Europe to the Canary Islands and Ecuador. He documents his encounters with other freedom seekers, wanderers, refugees, immigrants, indigenous communities and nomads; all of whom are one way or another facing the physical and non-physical borders, barriers and walls that are erected between people in our modern time.
