Facing the Wall

Directed by: Alamork Davidian
26 Minutes, 2015

Surni, 14, wakes up to the first day without her love, Eli. She is in an Israeli absorption center. She keeps her eyes and ears closed, she won’t leave her bed, she just tries to shut out her new reality and pretend she never left Ethiopia. Her family attempts to get her out of bed. As the hours go by, her mother, who was at first blind to Surni’s suffering, finds a way to reach out and helps her say goodbye to the world they left behind.
