Three Houses: An ACRI Documentary on East Jerusalem

ACRI is proud to share with you our new documentary: 3 Houses.


This short documentary tells the story of 3 Palestinian families living beyond the separation barrier in East Jerusalem and the reality of depravation they are forced to endure in their struggle to build a home.


‘3 Houses’ was filmed in Ras Khamis and Ras Shahada, Jerusalem neighborhoods that were cut off from the rest of the city when the Separation Barrier was built in 2002. Since then, these neighborhoods and the tens of thousands of people who live there have been utterly neglected by the Jerusalem municipality. In 2013, the desperate situation in this no-man’s-land was even further exacerbated when the municipality announced its intent to demolish the homes of thousands of residents.




With this video’s release, and with your help, ACRI is committed to bringing this extraordinary situation to light. Together we will continue to defend the rights of the tens of thousands of East Jerusalem Palestinians living in these neglected neighborhoods.



Please help ACRI defend human rights in East Jerusalem and all of Israel.

Even a small donation can make a big difference.
