'A superb central performance from Ali Suliman as Mustafa is at the heart of this impressive first feature, which persausively captures the grinding indignities of day to day Palestinian life.' - Wendy Ide, Screen International

Both gripping thriller and insightful character drama, 200 Meters makes clever use of the barriers and contradictions of life in the occupied territories in Palestine. Mustafa and his wife Salwa live 200 metres apart in villages separated by the wall. One day he gets a call every parent dreads: his son has had an accident. Rushing to cross the Israeli checkpoint, Mustafa is denied on a technicality and is forced to try and smuggle himself to the other side of the wall in an increasingly desperate odyssey along the border.

This film contains scenes of religious discrimination.
