Matana Mishamaim (A Gift From Heaven)| 19mins
Director: Guy Davidi | Producer: Guy Davidi & Qav Laoved
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: Israel
A foreign Thai worker was wounded by a missile launched from Gaza to the south of Israel days before the war in Gaza. After two years, without the ability to work and his debts growing, the worker is left almost without any support.
In this situation of great exploitation of foreign workers, the employer describes his perception of the state's responsibility and his own, relating the labor market and the Israel-Palestine conflict. The film delves into the self's sense of being victimized and how it can blind the self, be used to oppress the other, and become a destructive political power.
