Directed by Daniel Wachsmann
One of the most highly
acclaimed and controversial Israeli films, Daniel Wachsmann's drama focuses on a Jewish
landowner and his Arab worker. As the two work to build a ranch in Galilee, tensions flair
up over the imminent confiscation of Arab lands, and the "hamsin" (the hot wind
of the desert) sends tensions soaring to explosive heights. A powerful contemporary drama.
With Shlomo Tarshish and Yasin Shawap. Hebrew with English subtitles.
