6 Open, 21 Closed

Two years ago a prison revolt was brutally suppressed by Warden Ronny Lefkowitz and his guards. Beersheba Prison now seems quiet, but sounds of discontent still seethe among the inmates. Lefkowitz is about to retire and the appointment of his successor, Shlomo Twizer, raises tensions and expectations among the prisoners and guards. Twizer grew up in a violent Beersheba neighborhood, has served as warden elsewhere, and knows the prison population intimately. He has already declared his intention of implementing a more open policy and engaging each prisoner in dialogue. Beersheba Prison, 1993 – six months in this closed world, concealed from all but a few, where every hour is an eternity.
