A comic mockumentary based on the book by Itay Meirson. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has lasted 100 years. One hundred years of war, bloodshed, bitterness, and suffering. One hundred years of stalemate, intransigence, and failed peace deals. And now it’s all over. They’ve finally found the solution: a winner-take-all soccer match. The winner gets to stay. The loser leaves forever. And no whining.

8:30pm - Land of the Little People
2016 | 83 minutes | Narrative
U.S. Premiere
Director: Yaniv Berman

Four children who live in a village of military officers’ families form a gang, turning an abandoned army base into their camp. When another war begins in Israel and most men are drafted, the kids return to their camp in the wild. To their surprise, they discover two soldiers who deserted their units and are using their camp as a hideout. The children try to regain control over their stolen territory, but the soldiers hold their ground. A ruthless struggle develops between the two groups, and the soldiers, who once sought refuge from the war outside, now find themselves involved in another war, which turns out to be just as dangerous and bloody as the first.
