Director: Ido Haar
An intriguing glimpse of a shadow world of illegal Palestinian workers living in the margins of the Israeli occupied territories.A chance sighting of a line of men dashing across the highway spurred Israeli filmmaker Ido Haar to pick up a camera and tease out a larger story. From that moment of curiosity, he's uncovered the lives of illegal Palestinian workers who, by day, risk arrest as they work constructing luxury apartments and spend their nights in a hidden shantytown built from the cast-offs of local Israeli families. Haar's documentary records the daily lives of the illegal workers with disarming honesty, capturing the shared friendship and humour of these young men struggling to survive at the fringes of Israeli society.
