Sofía, a young Argentine photographer, is invited to spend ten days in Israel with a group of thirty young people during the Gaza conflict. She returns with a travel log that’s part light portrait of a vacation, part an attempt to understand a 60-year-old conflict.

Panorama / Places
Premier mundial

There are no “big subjects,” only ways of approaching them. Subjectivity can be an excavator that drills the hard rock of gravity. Shalom Bombón portrays the meeting of two worlds: exponents of a Jewish middle-class Buenos Aires, good-looking college students, and Israel, land of their ancestors. This culture clash reveals a melting pot of subjects in equal hierarchies: understanding the war with Palestine is as crucial as having fun; finding a link between history and one’s own identity is as vital as finding a boyfriend, or allowing oneself to be young and sensual. Ungar turns her body into an extension of the camera, and immerses us in an elliptical trip across Israel that includes dance lessons, campfires, soldiers, joking. Filming becomes an act of self-affirmation, a joyous way of saying “I am,” much more potent than the dogmatic explanations of local guides. GS
