Azkelon, 2011

Video, 16:46 Min.

I filmed actors playing the “knife” game. Azkelon is a hybrid of Aza (Gaza) and Ashkelon. These two neighboring towns share a beach but are separated by a border. The Gaza Strip is one of the most crowded areas in the world, populated mostly by refugees; Ashkelon was built by Jewish immigrants, mostly from North African and Arab countries. From my point of view, youth on both sides play this game. Where there is play, there is life. It is an agreement to simple rules: they may win, they may lose in games; real interaction across this boarder is unfortunately unlikely.
