The View from Bethlehem
Director: Chris Belcher
A Palestinian woman, Suher Qumsiyeh, describes the view from the roof of her mother's house in Bethlehem: the rapidly expanding Jewish colony on the neighbouring hill, and the wall under construction barring Palestinians from Jerusalem.
The original film, made in 2005, can be viewed here.
For her Masters Alice has created an exploratory soundtrack almost entirely from processing the speech of Qumsiyeh and the interviewer. Alice wanted to subtly bring out the unfairness of the situation using harsh sounds to reflect the bleak images, and aimed to create a thought-provoking soundtrack which highlights the key issues in the documentary.
