Director: Julie Shles, Israel, 2014, 76 min, documentary Hebrew/English original version with English subtitles A vast and perplexing labyrinth lies right in the heart of Tel Aviv, the Central Bus Station. Living in and around it are thousands of refugees, children of migrant workers with no identity of their own and impoverished Israeli families who feel like strangers in their homes. A gritty and mesmerizing picture of a city in transition. Five minutes from the sated center of Tel Aviv, lays a huge, bold, brutal labyrinth. The city’s central station has become a compound without rules. No man’s land. It’s hard to tell who is against whom, who controls whom: The Ghanians against the Eritreans against Sudanese against the locals against anyone black or non Jewish. A mosaic of people trying to survive while trapped in their roles in a dog eat dog world. Through the people, a portrait emerges, the face of this place that is that of the country. A mixture of languages, religions, locals and foreign refugees. A gunpowder barrel that has exploded spreading fear, racism, aggression and violence.
