DisOrient 2012 Enemy Alien and Wajeh
Enemy Alien | Feature Documentary| Konrad Aderer | 82 MIN.|
Though the captivating narrative of Konrad Aderer, a Japanese American whose family was interned during World War II, we learn of the live and legacy of Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a gentle but indomitable Palestinian-born human rights activist, arrested in a targeted sweep of Muslim immigrants. A comparative documentary, Enemy Alien, traverses the history of detention past and present while emphasizing the profound spirit of resiliency and dignity.

The many checkpoints, which divide the West Bank to separate areas and block the free movement of the Palestinians within the land, pose a great problem on everyday life. In this film, Wajeh, a coffee maker, sells coffee in the Qalandia checkpoint, near Ramallah, and that makes him a central figure, very well known, and having an important role on the lives of thousands of people who cross the checkpoint on a daily basis.
