White Nights

Israel 2012, 47 min, Arabic, Hebrew & English subtitles

Night after night a group of Palestinian women go on a border-crossing journey from their village, crawling on the ground through a hole in the fence and into Jerusalem. Here they pretend to be Israeli, blend into their surroundings, and go to work in order to support their children. On these nightly journeys they share with each other their lives, pain, hopes and dreams. These women maneuver their lives between the men who forbid them to work and the Israeli soldiers who pursue them. They risk capture and arrest every night to work as cleaning ladies in Jerusalem.
