The Iron Wall is a 2006 documentary film about the establishment of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, which, the film argues, is a strategy for permanent occupation of the territory.[1] Produced by the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees and Palestinians for Peace and Democracy, it was the "Official Selection" of the Al-Jazeera Television Production Festival.[2]

The Iron Wall follows the timeline of the settlements[1] and examines their effect on the peace process, featuring interviews with noted peace activists and political analysts, both Israeli and Palestinian, including Jeff Halper, Akiva Eldar and Hind Khoury.[2] The film also covers the controversial construction of the Israeli West Bank barrier.

The Iron Wall features English, Arabic and Hebrew, and has English subtitles.
