Country: Israel, 2007 - Feature Duration: 90 min. Language: Hebrew Director: Eytan Fox.
Israeli twenty-somethings share a flat in Tel Aviv's hip district, Shenkin Street. They love their carefree lives inside Tel Aviv's "bubble," where the strains of a violent outside world are kept at bay. Then Noam, a young Israeli man meets Ashraf, a young Palestinian man and they begin an affair. Ashraf cannot legally work or reside in Tel Aviv. Seeing Ashraf's situation as a chance to act on their principles of peaceful coexistence, the three roommates unite to bring Ashraf into the bubble. How their ideals run headlong into tragic realities forms the core tension in this smart, keenly felt drama.
