Shimi Asresay and Hili Noy Graduation short film from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem.

The peaceful daily routine of father and son is interrupted by an encounter of an unfamiliar boy, different from them in color. An allegory to the phenomena of racism as an acquired cultural epidemic, the story discusses the question of the personal conscience of each of us, versus the education we receive from our families and environment. Can we really insist on our personal belief system, when what we must believe in, is dictated to us?
The film presents how easily we acquire fear and hatred of foreigners, as well as how easily we might become the "strangers" and "others" ourselves.

Directors: Shimi Asresay and Hili Noy
Original Soundtrack: Itai Argaman
Sound Effects: Ohad Zrihen
