The Garden

Running Time: 85 mins.
Genre: Documentary, Foreign


A desolate section of Tel Aviv where young gay prostitutes and drug addicts gather is called "The Garden". It's a territory for the dispossessed and for pickups, drug deals, and clashes with the law. Over the course of one year the film follows two young men who have made the Garden their home: Nino, a 17-year-old Palestinian living illegally in Israel, in and out of jail and reformatories; and Dudu, an Arab-Israeli self- destructing under the debilitation of drug addiction. Against the backdrop of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and the unease and ridicule still directed toward homosexuals, the two friends depend on each other for support and a sense of security and love.
