'This Is My Land' Wins First Prize in Primed France 2014!

A 2013 Greenhouse film 'This is my Land' by Tamara Erde ,from Israel ,won the award for Best Documentary at the Primed Film festival in France.

The film follows several Israeli and Palestinian teachers over one academic year and revels how the Palestinian and Israeli (Arab and Jewish) education systems teach the history of their nations.

Through observing their exchanges and confrontations with students, debates with the ministries curriculum and its restrictions, the viewers obtain an intimate glimpse into the profound and long lasting effect that the Israeli/Palestinian conflict transmits onto the next generation.

Tamara Erde participated in Greenhouse in 2013. This is her first full length documentary.

The film was produced by Tatiana Bouchain and Oury Milshtein, co-produced by Julien Loron, and further supported by ILIADE & FILMS – SAYA.
