The Invisible

The film documents a period of twelve years in the unrecognized village of Arab al-Na’im in the Galilee. The Bedouins, who have lived there for over century, serve as scouts in the IDF.  They have been living in tin huts since 1963, without electricity, rationed water and an asphalt road. Despite the village being officially recognized in 1999, the bureaucratic red tape of government offices and political considerations have delayed the construction permits. Fahim, the protagonist of the film, strives to combat the injustices faced by his community and to secure access to essential services.
