“Using testimonials and previously- sealed government transcripts, director David Deri uncovers an unsettling dark chapter in the narrative of how Israel was settled and reveals the racism that shaped the country. In the early 20th century, the Jewish Agency’s social housing project was an integral program to settle the land of Israel. Most Jewish immigrants wanted to live in the cities. In order to help population dispersion, the Jewish Agency responded to this trend, using questionable means to convince mostly Sephardic and Mizrahi immigrants to settle in the most destitute areas of the country.” – Tornonto Jewish Film Festival
