Kibbutz

For 5 years Racheli Schwartz has been following the collapse and disintegration of her home  located in the Upper Galilee in Kibbutz Hulata. Most kibbutzim in Israel are in a disintegrating state of economic and ideological bankruptcy. Agriculture, the source of pride to a people returning to their land, is no longer profitable; orchards are being uprooted and the dairy is being dismantled. People become suspicious, isolated and begin to build fences around their homes. Yehuda is found hanging in the citrus plantation where he used to work. The dismantling of the Kibbutz had rendered him unemployed with no skills for other work. The film follows a number of Kibbutz members, each deeply influenced by the imminent death of the Kibbutz.

Distinction and Audience Favorite Award at DocAviv International Film Festival, Israel, 2005; International Film Festival, France, 2005; Israeli Film Festival, New York, Los Angeles & Miami, USA, 2005; Israeli Film Festival, Toronto & Vancouver, Canada, 2005; Agudas Achim Film Festival, Chicago, USA, 2005
