The complex Israeli reality

This is the trailer for ‘My Home’, the latest documentary film by Igal Hecht.

He wants to address the problem that people around the world do not understand the complexity of Israel. He thinks the majority of the media refrain from showing the regular lives and voices of everyday minorities in Israel.

An opening statement in the film explains the theme:

“Minorities make up 20 percent of Israel’s population … Israel’s Jewish population refers to them collectively as Arab. Many in Israel and around the world believe this Arab minority to be hostile towards the state. But there are Arabs who see Israel as a country and idea worth defending.”
