About the documentary: 

On average, two Palestinian kids are arrested every night by the Israeli army. They are interrogated, tried, and sent to prison. Two Kids A Day describes the use of minors’ arrests to control and repress Palestinian society.

The film allows a one-time glimpse of video materials from the four children’s interrogations. Through the interrogations, the personal story of the children and their friendship is revealed, as well as the story of the refugee camp from which they come and the story of the Palestinian people struggling for independence.

Through the children’s stories, the film presents a broad picture of the method behind the arrests of minors in the West Bank. The purpose of this method is to “break” the popular uprising in the villages that oppose the occupation. The arrests of the children suppress the resistance. Each year, over 700 Palestinian minors are arrested throughout the West Bank. 95 percent of the minors arrested live within one kilometer of a settlement and there is a direct link between the minors’ detention and the IDF’s protection of the settlements.

Throughout the film, key characters from the system are interviewed. A soldier who took part in arrests, Former deputy division head in the Israeli security agency, a human rights lawyer and a former military prosecutor. They shed light on the method and its modes of action and turn the personal story of the four children into a much wider story.
