Seret: Foreign Land

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Shlomi Eldar | 2017 | Israel | Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles | 75 mins

The Israeli government has tried to stop national TV screenings of this, in their words, “slanderous” documentary. Created by Shlomi Eldar, an Israeli filmmaker and journalist and a winner of the Sokolov Prize.

An Arab actor and a Jewish journalist search for a place where they can belong. Ghassan Abbas was once a famous TV star in Israel. Director Shlomi Eldar was once an Arab Affairs correspondent for Israel's TV news. Both men have discovered that their audiences are getting smaller by the day. Abbas is not getting any new roles, and Eldar's reports are getting pushed to the sidelines of the daily news reports. Israeli society no longer wants to hear about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Now facing a professional crisis, these two friends are searching for a way to escape, while taking account of how changes in Israel affect them both personally and on a national level.
