One of the most interesting thing about our times and generation is the news and how we can access it so quickly. I love all things positive and don't watch regular news that much unless there is something catastrophic that is happening and needs our attention.

After Banksy's Visit....

These kids in this video are amazing. They are on the ground in Gaza. They are telling it like it is. No hiding no faffing around. But they are making it cultured. They know who Banksy is. They sing Hip Hop and on top of that a girl is doing it. She is cool and contemporary.

Open Bethlehem

I have not seen Open Bethlehem, but if the reviews are anything to go by then it seems to be one of those films/documentaries that should not be missed. Bethlehem is an iconic town that represents Joy and Goodwill to all.

Shot over five years the film captures the city of Bethlehem as it has never been seen before. This is an emotional journey of one woman’s fight for her hometown. Leila Sanosur films this as a dedication to her late father who was the founder of Bethlehem university. And the her wanting to leave is something that has come to haunt her. Bethlehem is soon to be encircled by a wall and Leila is documenting this as it happens. A truly heart-breaking situation.
