The award-winning feature doc "Budrus," from director Julia Bacha, will be coming to select theaters nationwide this fall via Balcony Releasing. A hit on the festival circuit, and winner at Tribeca and Berlinale, Balcony will open "Budrus" in New York on October 8 and Los Angeles on October 22, in advance of its national roll-out.
Bacha's film, a Just Vision production, profiles a Ayed Morrar, a Palestinian community organizer, who unites local Fatah and Hamas members along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his town Budrus from destruction by Israel's Separation Barrier. The action-filled documentary chronicles this movement from its infancy.
