1991 / Israel, Palestinian Territories / 58min

During the Gulf war, 10 km from Tel-Aviv as bombs are dropping on the city, a Luna park called Israland is being built.
The film tells the story of a few of the characters taking part in the construction of the site : an Israeli mechanical digger driver, two Palestinian workmen, a German architect and sculptor and a Jewish real estate developer from Georgia. Their only common denominator is their work : the building of the Luna park where hatred is omnipresent.
