Reds: Chronicle of a Struggle

50 Minutes, 2008

The film “Reds- Chronicle of a Struggle” follows the struggle of the fans of the Hapoel Tel-Aviv basketball team against the decision of the Tel Aviv municipality to tear down the Ussishkin Hall, their home.

In the center of the film stands father and son, Nati and Erez, true warriors, red in blood and soul. The battle for Ussishkin quickly left the sports pages, becoming a battle for reserving cultural properties in Tel Aviv. At first, the fans way was positive, driven by love to the hall, but soon the Tel Aviv municipality smashes their hope. It closes the municipality meetings, doesn’t agree to sit and talk with them and sends the police to guard and arrest them. Just before the ruling decision, the battle goes out of control until the unavoidable explosion.
