In the course of the evening two films were presented in relation to the exhibition. The first was the documentary The Inner Tour, 2001 by Ra’anan Alexandrowicz. The film follows a group of Palestinians in a chartered bus during a three-day tour across Israel. This is their only chance to visit sites where their families once lived. The second film Knowledge is the Beginning, 2006 by Paul Smaczny, is a film about the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra initiated by the conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim together with the late academic Edward Said. The young musicians who play in the orchestra are from the Middle Eastern region, the aim is to promote understanding, patience and the curiosity to listen to the narrative of the other.
