Country Israel
Length 52' et 62'
Year 2009

On the street corners of south Tel Aviv, stand, forgotten, public telephones, a reminder of the pre-cellular days. Every weekend, the phones come to life as migrant workers gather around them, taking advantage of the weekly day off to phone home. Waiting on the other end of the line are children, financial difficulties, love – each phone call is a story in itself. Long Distance follows the stories of these intimate relationships through telephone conversations, where the line is dominated not only by the protagonists and their loved ones, but by the great distance, a distance that alters the relationships and remodels them in the economic reality of the Western world.
