Israel 2017, 85 min, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian and Hindi, Hebrew & English subtitles

A literary-documentary journey into Block 461 in Ma’alot.
The Neighborhood
“This is a tolerant neighborhood, like the seashore. Wave after wave of immigrant families have broken on it for decades.”
“Snow fell in southern Lebanon the day she was born, so they called her Snow-White. The silence of snow falls in her name, with whiteness and purity.”
The Indians
“They’ve solidified into a close group, tuned to a frequency known only to them. They listen constantly to their own songs, as though they were penetrated with the air of the neighborhood.”
“She embraces her notebook, and with its help, as though by magic, she reinvents herself wherever she goes.”
The film presents cooperation and confrontation between documentary expression in film and the literary text written by the novelist Sara Shilo.
