Infiltrators is a visceral and haunting “road movie” that chronicles the daily travails of Palestinians as they seek routes through, under, around, and over a bewildering matrix of barriers erected by Israel in the West Bank/Jerusalem area, including the 7-meter-high wall. Filmmaker Jarrar follows this high stakes “game” of cat and mouse with a handheld video camera. Jarrar╩╝s raw debut documentary was a standout success at the 2012 Dubai International Film Festival.

About the Filmmaker

Khaled Jarrar, born in Jenin, completed his studies in Interior Design at the Palestine Polytechnic University in 1996, and then entered the field of photography in 2004. In 2011, he graduated from the International Academy of Art – Palestine as a visual artist. His first exhibition took place in public spaces at the checkpoints of Huwarra and Qalandya in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Jarrar started making films and videos in 2008, among them Journey 110. He has participated in a number of international art events including Art Basel 41, Instant video, London Palestine Film Festival, the International Contemporary Art Fair “FIAC” in Paris, the Berlin Biennale 7 in 2012, and the Sharjah Biennial 11 in 2013.


3rd i New York’s monthly film/video/media salon is curated by local filmmakers and cultural producers to showcase the works of independent media artists of South Asian, Central Asian, and Arab descent. Providing alternative forums for these filmmakers who often have few venues to showcase their work and whose cultures and histories are often demonized or misrepresented in mainstream media, not only increases their visibility, but also provides a social forum for peers and audiences to participate in an ongoing discussion.

3rd i NY Film Programming is made possible in part with public funds from the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by New York State Council on the Arts, and the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, both in partnership with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

We thank Alwan for the Arts for hosting our film screenings and to the SINGH Foundation for acting as our fiscal sponsor.
