So Near, So Far

In 1996 the government of Israel approved the establishment of a Production Enterprise of the World Wide Giant Hi Tech Company Intel, in the development town of Kiryat Gat, in the southern part of Israel. The founding of the enterprise was accompanied by many promises to the local citizens, by the Israeli government as well as by the Chairman of Intel. The encounter between Intel and the local residents is the focus of this film. During the six years that Intel operated in Kiryat Gat, an ambivalent relationship was created between the company and the local population.
