Jeremy Hardy v The Israeli Army

Jeremy Hardy v The Israeli Army


When comedian Jeremy Hardy was asked to visit Palestine and do his bit to solve the world’s longest running conflict, facing the world’s fourth biggest military power was not his idea of a holiday. On the other hand, neither was travelling to Florida to spend Easter with his in-laws. What he didn’t know, as he arrived in Tel-Aviv a week later, is that he would become one of the most unlikely witnesses to a horrific yet seminal moment in the struggle of the Palestinian people.

Disastrously unprepared, Jeremy suddenly found himself dodging bullets and running for cover as the realities of life under occupation begin to emerge, and it’s no laughing matter. As the danger mounts and the rubber bullets are exchanged for live ammunition, the courage and determination of those who risk everything to help the Palestinian people is tested, and for the first time, the terrifying life of a human shield was captured on film. Jeremy Hardy Vs The Israeli Army is a quirky, moving story about the courage and resolve of those who pack their bags for Palestine to stand in the way of tanks and bring an end to the occupation.
