These days, a new short movie from occupied Palestine was released. The film deals with aspects of the current political economy of Balata Refugee Camp in Nablus. It provides the viewer with insights and voices from this hard-hit community. Starting with vegetable sellers and other residents of Balata, the video ends in a sweatshop at the edge of the camp, dealing with a form of employment, which is forced upon many Palestinians through the conditions created by Israeli occupation.
