"BETON" (Hebrew for "Concrete") explores the ever-changing Israeli landscape. Due to the urbanization process and the logic of "security needs", the public space of Israel is gradually being taken over by raw concrete. Using solely striking visuals and unsettling music, "BETON" takes us on a mesmerizing journey following this static material: from gigantic concrete columns and skyscraper skeletons to the tall separation wall.
BETON Won 2nd place in the Experimental Cinema Awards of the Jerusalem Film Festival 2009.
Jury Statement: “The Israeli reality is expressed in his work between routine and defense, and is examined with the aid of a sensitive and precise camera, showing the director’s great talent”
BETON was screened at the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam 2009.
