14 Footnotes to a Garbage Mountain (Hiria)

The film is about the things that we discard and how they have turned into an enormous pile of garbage. It’s about Hiria, a mountain of trash containing all the rubbish that people from the central area of Israel have disposed of over the past fifty years, like a snake shedding its skin. It’s about the people for whom Hiria is their life. It’s about proposals by famous artists from Israel and around the world, who were asked to give the mountain new form and meaning, now that it has ceased to serve as the main garbage dump for Metropolitan Tel Aviv. It’s about ecology and trash, and the winding ways that art tries to negotiate between the two.
