WINDING presents the untold story of the most infamous river in Israel, the Yarkon, as it meanders through a politicised landscape and flows through the heart of Israeli society. Exploring the interplay between society, politics and nature Winding presents the Israeli narrative through an entirely new and important lens
We trace the story of the river back from its glory days in pre-state Palestine where Jews and Arabs shared its resources. We watch its deterioration, gaining infamy as the most polluted and dangerous river in. And we follow in its current attempts at healing and recovery. Using a combination of rare archival materials and personal interviews, we reveal the profound connection between society and its land, between nature and man.
