Israel (2018); 34 min; OV with engl. subs
director: Matan Ben Moreh
Every year a festival springs forth from the dirt, built by those who find clarity in its squalor. As one character explains, dirty is a relative concept. “My cup is only dirty if I decide that it’s dirty.” Unshackled to and unmoved by the lures of the bright lights and big buildings that dominate the heaps they cling to, and motivated by a pure and simple mantra – each year they can make something real rise from an otherwise dusty and neglected patch of land.
But it’s not the land that they fight because they are very much of it – rather, in a culture defined by its existential nihilism – these punks are fighting to see whether they care enough about themselves as to even give a shit.
