A documentary filmmaker enters the heart of Tekoa, an Israeli settlement in the West Bank, and sets up a pop-up film studio with the aim to interview Jewish settlers of various backgrounds. Though engaging with their new left-leaning neighbor is a gradual process for even the most open-minded of the settlers, the conversations that ensue are fascinating, honest, and shockingly insightful.
Iris Zaki’s straightforward, stripped-bare approach to documentary filmmaking lifts the veil of ideological artifice to reveal the complexity of Israeli reality from both sides of the Green Line.
