Second Watch

Directed by: Udi Ben-Arie
14 Minutes, 1995

Berkowitz, an Israeli Reserve soldier, is on watch at a remote post along the Israeli-Jordanian border. Just a few yards away across the border, he finds an equally bored Jordanian soldier. The interaction between the two guards makes for an irresistible comic exercise and speaks volumes about the simple human truths underlying the complexities of life in the Middle East.
