Like Many Palestinian families, the Amer family live besieged "The Wall" (Israeli West bank barrier). Their daily lives are dominated by electrified fences, locks and a constant swarm of armed soldiers. Through sensitive lens, we discover the private world of all eight members of the family. The documentary, The Colour of Olives, reveals the unknown life of the Palestinian people, and offers a glimpse of their constant struggle. The story of Amer family offers its audience an opportunity to reflect on the effects of racial segregation, the meaning of borders and the absurdity of war.
