A multimedia documentary project composed by video-interviews and still pictures. It was filmed in the West Bank, Palestine. The two authors are a journalist, Emanuela Zuccalà, and a photographer, Simona Ghizzoni, both at their first experience in videomaking. Filmed with a Canon 5D, edited in English, the documentary represents a step of an investigation that has involved the authors for a long time, concerning gender violence in Italy and worldwide. The documentary introduces the stories of 7 women who have suffered different kinds of violation to their rights: from domestic violence to administrative detention; from the abuses perpetrated by Israeli settlers to post-traumatic stress disorder due to war.
