Storyline

Tekoa is a trendy hippie colony for Israeli settlers on the West Bank, where none of the controversial residents want to speak to the media. From the moment Iris Zaki arrives, tension fills the air. She sets up a small pop-up film studio in the middle of the small town, and stays put for over one month in order to meet the young settlers face to face. A simple intervention, which creates a complex chain of reactions from those who eventually agree to talk to her. From a woman who in the middle of an interview admits to being a fascist, to another who has survived a knife attack by a young Palestinian - and has forgiven him. 'Unsettling' is made by Iris Zaki alone as a social experiment that highlights the contrasts and contradictions of the settlers' self-perception, but which does so in something as rare as an active conversation with them. A conceptual ploy that places Zaki's film in the field between artistic practice and political activism, and which reaches beyond blind criticism. Written by CPH:DOX

The most childish and shallow (and boring) overview of the Israeli political situation
4 December 2019 | by sevexmmSee all my reviews

This movie is bad from all perspectives. Badly made, boring from the fist second to the last. The protagonist (who happens to actually be the one that made this "documentary") presents a very important issue, in the most confused, childish and shallow way possible.
