User Reviews

Unique and genuine
3 April 2017 | by tsimshotsuiSee all my reviews

Avi Mograbi's Between Fences not only has a rarely-known and talked about subject matter, it also has genuine care for them. The film is about refugees detained in Israel's Holot. We hear first-hand accounts of refugees from Eritrea and other countries, and then we get to see them reenact their own stories in this theater workshop with other detainees. It's a process that allows the audience light moments while also never forgetting the issue and the human beings at hand. I love how Avi found this unique way because the lighter moments never dilute the experiences the people had. Instead, they get to explore their own stories, see and learn from others' perspectives, and heal in the process. Avi's genuine care for his subjects is to be commended, especially because too many filmmakers often prioritize their 'vision' and their film over the real life situations and actual humans. I hope to see more from him.
