The movie, filmed in a number of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria, belongs to the genre of activist video, where the artist, by virtue of his/her own presence, is responsible for things happening. By means of a camera and a lot of nerve, Tzukerman confronts settlers in Judea and Samaria. He attempts to be their guest, to become a settler, and finally to confront them. The movie reveals the power relations in Israeli society, the personality of the conquering Israeli, and the paranoia that characterizes both sides – the Jewish settlers and the ‘foreign’ Jew who comes from the city. Found on the Collection “On Blindness” curated by Dana Gilerman. The movie, filmed in a number of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria, belongs to the genre of activist video, where the artist, by virtue of his/her own presence, is responsible for things happening. By means of a camera and a lot of nerve, Zuckerman confronts settlers in Judea and Samaria. He attempts to be their guest, to become a settler, and finally to confront them. The movie reveals the power relations in Israeli society, the personality of the conquering Israeli, and the paranoia that characterizes both sides – the Jewish settlers and the ‘foreign’ Jew who comes from the city. The work can also be found on the screening program, "Judaism, Israelism, and Messianism" curated by Galit Eilat. The program revisits the image of the "diasporal" orthodox Jew in the wake of various images disseminated in the media during the Disengagement (pull out from the Gaza Strip). Prior to the Disengagement it was commonly held that the New Jew is the mutation currently dubbed "Israeli". During the plan’s implementation, however, it became clear that this was not so; the image of the revisionist pioneer or rugged intellectual has not replaced the images of the diaspora Jew. The ideology that stands behind the religious national movement, the secular national movement, reveals that Zionism, like Shabbateanism, is but another messianic movement which, in its present incarnation, offers redemption through the land and through nationalism. Works offer different views on a world of faith, messianism and xenophobia.
