Storyline

In the heart of Tel Aviv, there is an exceptional school where children from forty-eight different countries and diverse backgrounds come together to learn. Many of the students arrive at Bialik-Rogozin School fleeing poverty, political adversity and even genocide. Here, no child is a stranger. The film follows several students' struggle to acclimate to life in a new land while slowly opening up to share their stories of hardship and tragedy: Mohammed, a sixteen-year-old refugee from Darfur, witnessed the killing of his grandmother and father before escaping alone through Egypt to Israel. Having never been in a school before, his sharp mind and tremendous determination enable him to make up the years of study he never had. Johannes arrived at Bialik-Rogozin after spending most of his life in refugee camps across the Middle East. His father struggles to obtain a work visa while twelve-year-old Johannes struggles to adjust to attending school for the first time. After a slow start, his ... Written by SGPictures

Strangers No More (2010)

*** (out of 4)

Oscar-winning documentary short takes a look at a school in Tel Aviv that is the home to students from more than forty-eight different countries. Throughout the forty-minute running time we see the struggles that the teachers must go through to teach them as well as see the issues these kids have coming to school. STRANGERS NO MORE is a very good movie, although I'm not quite certain I'd call it Oscar-worthy. Either way, I think film buffs (and fans of the genre) should find it entertaining because it's a pretty wild story and the difficulties in doing what these teachers do just seem to be so challenging that not many people would even attempt it. Some of the most heartbreaking scenes deals with a student who recalls seeing his father and grandmother murdered. This here leads to some scenes where students come to the school for the very first time, are running from dangers or perhaps they have their own fears that must be dealt with while at the same time trying to teach them. The film is certainly very uplifting and gives one hope that if you do try for something, no matter the odds, with a lot of work you can pull it off.
