The Whole Story



This powerful film documents the daily struggles of two schools in the West Bank, providing a unique insight into the pressures of life in Palestine under Israeli occupation.

It's the start of a new term at King Talal Boys' School and Hajja Rushda Girls' School, but academic life for the students and teachers of Nablus is constantly interrupted by the harsh realities of life under occupation.

Watch as both schools struggle with teachers' strikes and constant overcrowding caused by influxes of children from nearby refugee camps.

These stresses are in addition to the relentless safety fears created by the army raids and fierce street battles that take place only metres from the school gates.
