Town On A Wire

The Romans called Lod “The City of God”. Today, however, this dilapidated town is central Israel’s forgotten backyard, a mere 10-minute drive from prosperous Tel Aviv. Acute poverty has helped to cultivate racism, bigotry, and violence, so that many of Lod’s 75,000 inhabitants – Jewish, Muslim, and Christian alike – live in a constant state of fear and misery. Filmmakers Uri Rosenwaks and Eyal Blachson delve deep into the entrails of this small, hardened city. For four years, they follow the brave men and women who refuse to give up hope for their impossible and beloved hometown.
