    • Synopsis
    • By an ancient spring near Jerusalem, an Israeli couple finds a quiet moment away from the rat race of Tel Aviv life. The cool water spring is also used by a group of Palestinians heading to their jobs in Israel. At high noon, they are forced to look each other in the eye.
      The project WATER is a cinematic co-operation created within the Depart¬ment of Film and Television at Tel-Aviv University. In 2012, a small group of Is¬raeli and Palestinian filmmakers directed a feature film with total artistic freedom, exploring a strongly unifying subject: WATER.
      WATER is a poetic and pastoral subject, but one that is also very political as well as violent in the context of the Israel-Pa¬lestine conflict.
      WATER equally belongs to two conflic¬ting populations, who seldom manage to overcome prejudice and political inti¬midation
