This video provides brief insight into the struggle of Palestinian street artists living in the Palestinian Territories, and how they use graffiti to communicate in a state of perpetual oppression and injustice. Graffiti was used by Palestinians during the first Intifada (uprising) to give a voice to those ignored by media. By the second Intifada, graffiti had become more elaborate in its aesthetics. Here, the artists Hafez Omar, Areej Mawasi, Majd Abdel Hamid and Hamza Abu Ayash discuss their beliefs and obstacles as artists working under occupation.

Featuring the work of Hafez Omar, Areej Mawasi, Majd Abdel Hamid and Hamza Abu Ayash and featuring artwork by Mohamed Gaber and Amal Kawash. Filmed in Ramallah and the West Bank by May Odeh and Fuad Hindieh. Music by Georges Moussayan. Produced by Soraya Morayef.
