IN THE TUNNEL
IN THE TUNNEL
"Life has taught us to believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
But in this tunnel, if there's a light at the end, cock your weapon".
Location of events - a terrorist tunnel on the border between Gaza and Israel. From the Israeli side enter
soldiers Iftach and Tzlil, and from the Gaza side - Mansur and Hisam. Now they are all there, stuck together. One of them will become a ticking time bomb while above them, in the world aboveground, the customary political carnival, will buzz and play with their lives.
Is theater the mirror of reality? Can it reflect and judge this reality “here and now”?
To whom and what to believe? Who triggers and who lowers the trigger in a world ruled by mass media, in a reality of broken communication?
The film "No Man's Land" (2001) won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film and conquered the hearts of millions as a moving antiwar allegory.
