“‘Even Though My Land is Burning’ is the result of a three-year process during which I attempted to analyze the role of Israeli activists in the Palestinian popular struggle today, especially through the perspective of a struggle towards a “one-state solution.” It is the result of numerous trips to Palestine, filming by myself with whatever equipment I could afford or borrow. Of course as an Israeli Jew myself, albeit one who left the country a decade ago, it was also a very personal journey and one which has further sharpened my private political understanding of the place I grew up in”. – Film-maker Dror Dayan
