Green Men

Company 44 of the Border Patrol is home to Druze, Muslim, Circassian, Bedouin and Jewish policemen, mostly from poor neighborhoods and development towns, as well as new immigrants from the former Soviet Union and Ethiopia – a coalition of Israeli minorities living a bleak life. Israeli society has sent them to perform the thankless tasks that no one else will do — they are one of the most blatant symbols of Israeli occupation of the Palestinians. This is a film about the Border Patrol and their activities along the thin line, separating Israel and the Palestinians, caught there in a bitter conflict between two uncompromising extremes.
