Noam Wachs reaches out to his friends whom he’d not been in contact with for over a decade and invites them up north to the Lower Galilee region – back to the place where they all served together in the IDF’s military and agricultural Nahal youth programme in the early eighties. Through this reunion, Wachs aims to finish a documentary about those days which he is currently editing, in the hopes that the film would help him overcome past traumas. The reunion, set against the backdrop of an early 1990s political climate that saw Rabin and Arafat’s historic handshake, reawakens age-old demons for the long-disbanded group of friends. The film was showcased at the Haifa International Film Festival and a range of other international festivals – at Washington DC, New York City, Biarritz, and so on.
