Hotline
Silvina Landsmann
Israel, France | 2015 | 99 min.

Category: Right to Know

The Israeli human rights organisation Hotline is faced with an almost Sisyphean task: trying to help unregistered migrants coming from all corners of Africa. Israel considers migrants without residence permission undesirable and throws them all, without mercy into prison, regardless of whether they face persecution and death in their home country. Over the last 50 years, only one person has received political asylum in Israel. The film presents a disturbing view of Israeli bureaucracy, disrespect for internationally recognised conventions, as well as the attitudes of some Israelis to the issue of immigration.
