Lashabiya – Military Operations on Urban Terrain

Directed by: Yehezkel Lazarov
8 Minutes, 2009

In an elementary school courtyard, a young Palestinian man plays a dangerous version of the classical children’s game “1,2,3 Soleil!”, with an armed squad of Israeli soldiers. In this game players are disqualified for moving. The soldiers charge forward, deeply motivated to reach him, and then freeze when the Palestinian turns to face them. He uses different tricks in order to make the soldiers budge and to remove them from the courtyard until only one soldier remains standing.
