Dir. Michal Aviad (Israel, 2016, 70 min.)

This moving film focuses on the lives of women in Israel, specifically those from North Africa and Poland who came by ship in the 1950s and 1960s and were sent to Dimona, a newly established town in the desert. They talk about the pain of leaving their homes behind, poverty, the difficulties of adjusting to their new homeland, and about their determined attempts to create rich and meaningful lives. Intimate conversations are interwoven with stunning archival footage and music of the time.
