”Economy of fear” is a short creative documentary where we walk along the character Fear who observes the people of Israel and Palestine in everyday situations.
Fear explains how it’s goal is to make people think that a solution to the conflict isn’t possible. The people must believe that the current situation is as good as things will get.
Only then will they accept the constant presence of Fear and obey their mighty leaders who promise to take care of them. Only by accepting the current situation can they become happy.
