Over the past year Nurit Sharett has been regularly visiting the city of Hebron, where she teaches video art to a group of young Palestinian women. Over time the artist established firm relationships with three of her students and their families. The video documents everyday life in that microcosm dissimilar any other city. Subsequently to the Hebron Agreement signed in 1997, IDF withdrew from about 80 percents of Hebron, and the city was split into sectors: H1, governed by the Palestinian authority, and sector H2, an Israeli governed enclave with 600 Israeli soldiers and some 600 Jewish residents as well as encompassing over 30,000 Palestinians residents. The traffic between the two sectors of the city is constant, a part of the residents’ routine, while driving a vehicle in H2 is permitted only to Jews and foreigners.  The right of driving, among other privileges the Jewish residents are granted, distinguishes the character of the pedestrian city. In the video Sharett shows us the families and homes she visits, a wedding she was invited to, and of course – the outside views: the landscape, soldiers, the wire and walls. In "H2" Sharett tells us her story in Hebron.
