Neighbours

Israel, 1991 (MIFF 1993, Documentary)

Director: Dannah Nayblat

The filmmaker moves into a studio flat in Jerusalem, and finds herself embroiled in an ongoing battle between the neighbours on either side of her. One is a hostile, bitter per­vert, glorifying in his (dubious) past army career. The other is an extreme right-wing radi­cal, who claims to be a specialist in everything but medicine. Each neighbour heaps vitriol and innuendo on the other with tragic, as well as comic, effect.
