Action, Drama

The guy already seated is reading an Arabic-language newspaper, with a photo of some demonstration or riot (it goes by too fast to tell). The guy who just got on the subway has a Star-of-David necklace, and makes a point of jostling it so that the newspaper guy notices. This might be taken a number of different ways (including cruising) but I think the intent is that these two guys are not happy to be on the same train, probably because one is an Arab or Muslim and the other is Jewish, each holding some prejudices about the other, but they tolerate each other’s presence.

Directed by Guy Nattiv and Erez Tadmor / Israel / 2003
