Movie synopsis: Gaza, year 1989. Young soldiers have just finished their training and are sent to serve in an occupied area full of civilians. Frequent conflicts with the Palestinian inhabitants finally culminate in death of one of the soldiers, which transforms the mission into a dogged search for vengeance. Compassion and mutual respect between the inhabitants of the turbulent territory and the soldiers gradually disappear, and the thin line of humanity is nowhere to be found. Director Yariv Horowitz, a former war photographer, depicts the psychological impact on the participants of the still ongoing Israeli-Arab conflict through a series of violent incidents, watching the soldiers first lose their innocence and eventually even their selves.
Awards and Nominations: Berlinale (2013) – C.I.C.A.E. Award
