Arna's Children, Les enfants d'Arna

A film by: Juliano Mer Khamis
Produced by: Osnat Trabelsi & Pieter van Huystee
Written & Directed by: Juliano Mer Khamis & Danniel Danniel

"The child under military occupation is affected psychologically, emotionally and academically. So if one wants to support and strengthen these children, one has to consider them from all these aspects. The socialisation of the child is the most basic thing in its life; if you see children only as individuals, in fact you can be indirectly deepening their problems... Our principle is to serve the child: to turn the pyramid [of education and authority] upside down."
