How does education shape an individual? What is the power of a historical narrative?
In This Is My Land, the classroom is a microcosm of society’s contrasting, often uneasy reiterations of history. Director Erde examines the roots of the conflict through six independently-run schools that adhere to the national curriculum.

Part of a growing number of Israeli filmmakers who are turning their attention to the country’s core institutions, she arrests attention through the gripping portraits of several educators and personal interviews with students.

The documentary raises important questions about the partial and selective nature of history, the weight transferred onto the classroom’s youth, and its effects on a nation’s future. With This Is My Land, Erde casts a cinematic light on an issue that is both tremendously difficult and fascinating.
