SYNOPSIS
On The Side Of The Road, 82″, Israel/Palestine, 2013
Former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky looks at Israelis’ collective amnesia of the fateful events of 1948 when the state of Israel was born and most of the Palestinians became refugees. She follows the transformation of Israeli veterans trying uncover their denial of the war that changed the region forever.
Tarachansky then turns the camera on herself and travels back to her settlement where that historical erasure gave birth to a new generation, blind and isolated from its surroundings. Attempting to shed a light on the country’s biggest taboo, she is met with outrage and violence.

בצדי הדרך, 82″, ישראל/פלסטין, 2013
מתנחלת לשעבר ליאה טרשצ’נסקי חוקרת את האמנזיה הקולקטיבית של ישראלים בקשר לאירועי תש”ח כשמדינת ישראל נולדה ורוב הפלסטינים נהיו פליטים. היא עוקבת אחר הטרנספורמציה של לוחמי 48′ ישראליים שמנסים לחשוף את ההכחשה שלהם עצמם ושל בני דורם כלפי המלחמה הגורלית.
טרשצ’נסקי אז פונה את המצלמה על סיפורה שלה כשהיא חוזרת להתנחלות בה גדלה, איפה שההדחקה ההיסטורית יצרה דורות חדשים, סגורים ומנותקים מסביבתם.
