Overview

Chased by the army, a human trafficker crosses the border on a daily basis. An intimate yet harrowing portrait, shot over eight years, is about a man living on the edge in one of the most dangerous regions of the world.

Review

A car is driving through a barren field and hill, raising a cloud of dust. It’s a kind of shuttle taxi to and from Jenba, a small town in the south of the West Bank, Palestine, “one of the most dangerous regions of the world,” to smuggle illegal Palestinian workers every day while avoiding the sight of the military and police. Israel began to install an 8-meter-high concrete wall on the Palestinian border in 2002, promoting the construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Currently, the shuttle taxi business has become even more dangerous because it is blocked by the huge walls except around Jenba. Over the course of eight years of sincerity, this film has been filmed by German director Daniel Carsenty and Palestinian director Mohammed Abugeth. It captures the “dangerous business” of Palestinian drivers and their private lives in a suspenseful way. [CHUN Jinsu]
