Director Iris Zaki
Documentary, 2018, Israel/UK, 70 min
Hebrew with subtitles
New England Premiere
Filmmaker Iris Zaki (Women in Sink, BJFF 2016) arrives in the settlement of Tekoa, rents an apartment, and sets up a makeshift film studio. She wants to interview the settlers, a group that’s foreign to her and her friends in Tel Aviv…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.
