Students from three film schools in Israel (Almanar Film School in Taibe, Tel Aviv University and Sapir Academic College in Sderot) were brought together for a one-day workshop to watch Jean Rouch¿s film La Pyramide Humaine (1959). After watching the film ¿projected in 16 mm and subtitled in both Arabic and Hebrew the students discuss their viewing experience. This is documented by Filipa César.
