of Expression - The Immigrant Experience in Israel

Israel, 2004, 108 minutes, feature, Hebrew/ French, English subtitles
Director:  Avi Nesher

The year is 1969.  Into a small town in the Israeli desert, inhabited mostly by Moroccan immigrants, come a few Indian families who have immigrated to Israel seeking a better life in the West.  The Indians, who think of themselves as British, find themselves embroiled in a culture war with the Moroccans, who consider themselves French and look down on the darker-skinned Indians.  A captivating mix of old enemies, cultural mine fields, the very British game of cricket, teenage girls and the sexual revolution of the Sixties ensue in this award-winning film. Please note this film contains nudity.
