By an ancient spring near Jerusalem, an Israeli couple
finds a quiet moment away from the rat race of Tel Aviv life.
The cool water spring is also used by a group of Palestinians
heading to their jobs in Israel. At high noon, they are forced
to look each other in the eye.
Directors: Nir Sa’ar & Maya Sarfaty
“In the film there’s a moment when the young couple encounters the Palestinian group at the spring. In that moment there is something that forces you to confront a political-ideological demand that was kept theoretical up until now… then it must be transformed,
immediately, to a practical decision: Should we stay or should we leave. Truth to be told, the safer choice is to leave but we chose to stay – only at this point a certain dialogue can
start - for this territory is no one’s, or every one’s.”
Nir Sa’ar & Maya Sarfaty are currently living in Tel Aviv. Nir is graduated from the Film and Television department of Tel Aviv University. Maya is graduated from the Nissan Nativ Acting Studio.
