Shot over a period of 25 years, Two Blue Lines examines the human and political situation of Palestinian people from the years prior to the creation of Israel to the present day. By primarily featuring the narratives of Israelis whose positions run counter to their country'۪s official policy, filmmaker Tom Hayes provides a portrait of the ongoing conflict not often depicted in mainstream media.
