A multi-award winner at Berlinale 2024 from a Palestinian-Israeli collective, this salient documentary follows a community’s forced expulsion through the eyes of a West Bank activist and an Israeli journalist.

Yuval and Basel are a similar age and live not far from each other, but they have vastly different life experiences. Their uncommon alliance begins in 2019, when Israeli Yuval visits Palestinian Basel and his family while reporting on forced evictions. Over four years they become friends, working together and filming as tensions rise following the outcome of the Masafer Yatta community’s 22-year court case. Bulldozers move in, destroying homes and buildings. Villagers rebuild – only for the homes to be torn down again. Despite the confronting content, the resulting documentary is not without hope and humanity. No Other Land is essential viewing.

Limited seats are available for patrons requiring access for wheelchairs, low vision and hearing loop. Please contact our ticketing team directly on 1300 733 733 or tickets@sff.org.au to complete your booking.
The footage is out there, and it’s rarely been assembled into a more concise, powerful, and damning array than it is here. Now it only has to be seen
