Development and Peace supported the production of the documentary OPEN BETHLEHEM to help bring to light the impacts of the construction of the separation wall on Palestinians and on a city that is a symbol of religious and cultural diversity. The film offers an intimate look by filmmaker Leila Sansour at the iconic city as she chronicles the building of the separation wall in her hometown of Bethlehem. The film spans ten momentous years in the life of Bethlehem, revealing a city of astonishing beauty and political strife.

OPEN BETHLEHEM is also an organization that advocates globally to keep Bethlehem open and to work to ensure that the city remains an example of an open and multi-faith city in the Middle East.

The OPEN BETHLEHEM project invites us to learn more about the situation of the ancient and iconic town of Bethlehem, and to work to make Bethlehem an open city:
