Farewell poster  by Marc Halperin One of the films I looked forward to watching at the LA Film Festival was Farewell which premiered last November at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam.

In the case of finding solutions to some of the world's most complicated issues, none is more pressing than the need t...

What it is, is a take on competing interests making a place for themselves that has echoes of Israel and ...
