The Unwelcoming (2014)
- Summaries (3)
The challenges of immigration are exposed in this touching film where we follow a family who moves to Israel in 2006 from the Tunisian Island of Djerba.
In 2006, Kmimish Uzan decides to immigrate from Djerba (an island off the coast of Tunisia), to Israel with his wife and five children. The Uzan family arrives at the most natural place, Moshav Beit HaGadi, populated primarily by immigrants from Djerba who arrived during the 1950s. Except that upon their arrival, the reality of the new country hits them between the eyes, as the inhabitants of the Moshav seek to drive them out of their home for being "primitive, and uncivilized." The film recounts the story of Kmimish, who wishes to earn an honest living in Israel by building a sheep pen. Kmimish rallies the entire family around this mission, though this act exposes the tension between the children who seek to integrate into the new country and the father, who feels that he has lost his honor. The many obstacles the family faces leave them with two solutions: remaining in Israel and fighting for their home, or returning to their homeland in Tunisia.
