The earth sign, the water sign, the human being sign - this is the promised land. This document, focusing on Israel and its struggle (fight) for sovereignty and identity continues Marker's line of political testimonies. A meditative commentary on how a new state is built hovers over elusive impressionist images, hiding opportunities to make discoveries, which, albeit short-lived, are penetrating the limits of illusion. A literary essay combines with a documentary image to make a hypnotic film, which was awarded Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival.
