The Mall (2006)

13 Jun

13m; Israel

Director: Yonatan Ben Efrat

Synopsis: At one of central Israel’s largest junctions, in a surreal underground world, live hundreds of Palestinian workers in hiding in order to find a day’s work and bring something home to their families in the West Bank. Deep in the concrete skeleton of an abandoned shopping mall, the workers sleep during the week. Those who have been arrested in the past confirm that the mall is worse than jail, yet they don’t ask for freedom – they only want a day’s work.
