People2People is based on a concept study by filmmaker Fabian Vetter, undertaken during his master’s degree at the University of Westminster. He states: ‘Meeting different people on both sides of the separation wall allowed me to gain a better picture of the complexity and the historical context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict…the more people I met and listened to, the less I understood why, for decades, these people have failed to make sustainable peace’. This deeply moving VR documentary originally comprised of six portraits of Palestinians and Israelis. We have chosen two of them as part of this programme.
