Sharqiya

No one really appreciates Kamel Nadjer, the young Bedouin security guard at the Be’er Sheba central bus station, neither his family, nor his Israeli colleagues. When the poor tin shacks he shares with his family in the desert are menaced by demolition orders, Kamel decides to take action. He will stage a bombing in the bus station and then prevent it, in order to establish himself as a hero, save his village, and win the admiration he so desires.

• “Poignant, low-key drama… Minimal, atonal music wryly underscores moments
of greatest intensity…
” Alissa Simon, Variety

• “Imposing the pace of the desert… non-professionals acting naturally…
documentary authenticity… in the portrait of Bedouin life.
” Dan Fainaru,
Screen International

• “Excellent film… the film has a rhythm of its own, unusual in Israeli
films, but suited for the story, the characters… Livne has a great
cinematic vision, and mainly insight and cinematic fairness, which provide
the film its volume and authority.
” Uri Klein, Haaretz

• “Le plus juste et émouvant des trois… Le plus épuré et poétique aussi…
Une fable laconique, au réalisme tranchant et à la beauté fantomatique…
” Jacques Mandelbaum, Le Monde, 23/5/12 (Sélection ACID, Cannes)
