A short film produced by Histadrut about night workers in different sectors.
Magen David Adom paramedics, laborers in printing houses and factories, mail workers, traders, and bakers are the protagonists of this film, which captures night shift workers across Israel. The pictures are accompanied by a soundtrack of the laborers’ voices, explaining in Hebrew and Yiddish how they found themselves working in a time when most sleep. This is David Gurfinkels’ first public work as a cinematographer.
