Hotline

.

Hotline for Refugees and Migrants, a small Tel Aviv based NGO, works around the clock. The activists, most of them women, look after the rights of people without papers, give them legal advice, deal with government bureaucracy and promote public campaigns for their cause. The camera catapults us right into the midst of action. The activists are often attacked, verbally and physically. The organization has to fight both the rising xenophobic public mood and the legislation, which treats any illegal border crossing as criminal offense.

    "Coolly executed, but intensely charged in political terms, Silvina Landsmann’s documentary Hotline is not merely revealing but downright shocking in what it conveys about Israel’s policies on outsiders"
  • Deutsche Welle
    "Both disturbing and moving"
  • Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
    "Landsmann offers up an insightful glimpse into a seldom-seen side of local Israeli life"
  • A Journey into the Mind of X
    "An indictment against the Israeli politics towards refugees"
