Between Fences

  • Israel
  • France

Avi Mograbi and Chen Alon meet African asylum-seekers in an Israeli detention centre in the Negev desert. The film seeks to investigate the status of the refugees in Israel using ‘Theatre of the Oppressed’ techniques. Posing the questions: what leads men and women to leave everything behind and go towards the unknown? Why does Israel, land of the refugees, refuse to take into consideration the situation of the exiled, thrown out of their country by war, genocide and persecution? Can the Israelis working with the asylum seekers put themselves in the refugee’s shoes? Can their collective unconscious be articulated?
