The glorious strains of gospel music wash over the West Bank in this stunning, remarkable film. An African-American gospel choir travels to Palestine to sing in a Palestinian play about Martin Luther King Jr. Artists meet across two worlds, and these loving and talented young Christian singers become witnesses to life under occupation and a non-violent movement for social justice. “Al Helm” is Arabic for The Dream.
