Description

Filmmaker Iris Zaki (Women in Sink, BJFF 2016) rents an apartment and sets up a makeshift film studio in the settlement of Tekoa. She wants to interview the settlers, a group that’s foreign to her and her Tel Aviv friends…but none of the Tekoa residents want to speak to her. Despite their initial suspicion of this left-winger, settlers from various backgrounds gradually open up and engage in honest, surprising, and sometimes funny conversations, providing a fresh take on Israeli reality from both sides of the Green Line.

 

Followed by a conversation with director Iris Zaki
