»Ten years ago, I went to Ethiopia to film the people known as ‘Falashas’ or black Jews, who were mal­treat­ed for their strict obser­vance of the Jewish reli­gion and who long remained unrec­og­nized by Israel. Two years later, Israel orga­nized a huge air­lift and admit­ted them into the coun­try. Ten years on, I went look­ing in the huts of the Tel-Aviv sub­urbs to find the people I had pre­vi­ous­ly met in Ethiopia.« (François Mar­golin, 1996)
