Winding

Winding is the story of the most infamous river in Israel, the Yarkon. Our film begins with the arrival of the Zionist settlers to the Promised Land at the end of the 19th century and their attempt to build a new society on the banks of the Yarkon.
We sail the full length of the Yarkon’s winding path to tell the unknown story of its water; water that no longer springs from the earth’s depths, that is associated with fear and death. Water that remembers, accumulates, and then avenges.
Through the use of archival materials and social and personal stories, we paint a portrait of a river that flows in the heart of our society.
