Walking the Wall / Showtime from the Frontline

gfs-97double disc set

The acclaimed 'Walking the Wall' and 'Showtime From The Frontline' shows in one box set with additional footage of Mark's journey along the route of the Israeli wall.

Walking the Wall
Never one to take the easy option, Mark decided to go rambling in the Middle East, walking the entire length of the Israeli Separation Barrier. This is the story of 300,000 settlers, a 750km wall, six arrests, one stoning, too much hummus and a simple question... ‘Can you ever get away from it all with a good walk?’

Showtime from the Frontline
Dodging cultural and literal bullets, Israeli incursions and religion, Mark and his team set out to run a comedy club and put on two nights in the Palestinian city of Jenin. Only to find that it is not so simple to celebrate freedom of speech in a place with so little freedom.

Jenin refugee camp, a stronghold for the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade during the Second Intifada, is not a place synonymous with laughs. But it is also home to the Jenin Freedom Theatre and to people with a wealth of stories to tell.

Mark tells this story alongside Faisal Abu Alhayjaa and Alaa Shehada, two performers, actors and now aspiring comics from the Jenin Club. This is a story about being yourself in a place that wants to put you in a box. Funny, moving and necessary. Mark says, it’s the nearest he will ever get to Alan Parker’s ‘Fame’.
