Director, Script: Avi Mograbi
Camera: Avi Koren

In his only feature film to date, Mograbi depicts a deportation. The gestures are subtle, the facial expressions are almost friendly and hardly a word is spoken. It isn't the manner of deportation that is under attack, it is the practice in itself that is revealed to be contemptuous of human beings. Deportation was Avi Mograbi's debut film.
