My Beloved Country

A literary-documentary journey into Block 461 in Ma’alot. The film presents cooperation and confrontation between documentary expression and the literary text written by the novelist Sara Shilo.
The Neighborhood – “This is a tolerant neighborhood, like the seashore. Wave after wave of immigrant families have broken on it for decades.”
Snow-White – “Snow fell in southern Lebanon the day she was born, so they called her Snow-White. The silence of snow falls in her name, with whiteness and purity.”
The Indians – “They’ve solidified into a close group, tuned to a frequency known only to them. They listen constantly to their own songs, as though they were penetrated with the air of the neighborhood.”
Larissa – “She embraces her notebook, and with its help, as though by magic, she reinvents herself wherever she goes.”
