Description: 1 videodisc of 1 (DVD-R) (66 min.) : sd., col. ; 4 3/4 inGenre/Form: Feature films. | Documentary films. | Nonfiction films.LOC classification: DVB 8361 (viewing copy)Summary: "In the heart of Jerusalem - defying generations of segregation, violence and prejudice - stands an unusual symbol of unity: a gay bar called Shushan. City of Borders goes inside this vibrant underground sanctuary on the East/West border of the Holy City, where people of opposing nationalities, religious affiliations and sexual orientations gather under one roof, to find acceptance and create a community among people typically viewed as each other's 'enemy.' Set against the construction of the separation wall between Israel and the Palestinian territories and the struggle for a gay pride parade in Jerusalem, City of Borders explores this resilient community's daily fight for dignity and their right to existence. In observing the lives and struggles of the regulars at Shushan, City of Borders highlights the bond forged when people from warring worlds embrace what everyone shares in common-the right to be accepted and belong-rather than be defined by the differences that tear them apart"--Copyright description.
