Yoel Israel and the Pashkavils

In the heart of Jerusalem is a tiny self-made Jewish ghetto – Naturei Karta. It is home to anti-Zionist Jews who refuse even to recognize the existence of the State of Israel. Television and radio, newspapers and magazines are all forbidden. The only form of media is the printed wall poster – the Pashkavil. This film portrays Yoel, who leads Naturei Karta’s battle against Israel, a member of a more ‘liberal’ Ultra-Orthodox sect. The battle rages on and off the Pashkavils. This is the first time TV cameras have ever penetrated this community’s walls of rejection.
