Dir. Ran Tal (74min, Israel, 2013)
In Hebrew and Arabic with English Subtitles
The astounding beauty and serenity of Gan HaShlosha, better known as Sakhne (“hot spring”), serves simultaneously as the backdrop and central character in Ran Tal’s uniquely compelling documentary. One of the most famous and visited parks in Israel – over 400,000 people retreat there annually – Sakhne serves as an informal melting pot, offering respite for Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Christian alike. The documentary masterfully glides between their stories, weaving a richly layered tapestry full of pain, laughter and intrigue that in the end, is representative of nothing short of Israel itself.
