GALOOT


Directed by | Asher de Bentolila Tlalim

Genre documentary  |  Length: 97mins  |  Year of production: 2003


Galoot (‘exile' in Hebrew) is an intimate saga that touches the seeds of the pains and tragedies transformed nowadays into the locked Palestinian/Israeli conflict. A temporary exile from his homeland allows the Israeli filmmaker to see the conflict with new and provocative eyes. Through his Palestinian and Israeli friends and through his and his wife's personal journeys ‘Galoot” provides a reflective journey through homes and deserted homelands in Israel, Palestine, Poland, Morocco and England. Disillusioned by politicians, Tlalim tries to discover a scientific solution to the conflict with the help of Dr. Tim Hunt, Nobelprize winner 2001.
