Dubak: A Palestinian Jew is an authentic story of love and anguish. This beautiful documentary follows an extraordinary individual whose life is thoroughly intertwined with the land. Dubak, a man with an exceptional personality lives in the Gush Etzion region of the West Bank. This territory, occupied by Israel since the 1967 war, is where he lives and has created a unique way to justify his presence there. He is a bereaved father, an informal educator, and a soul mate to the local Arab population. With the help of the native Bedouin, Dubak sets up a retrieval and rescue mission to track missing persons in the desert. Dubak, a lost soul himself, finds that his work, though intense and solitary in nature, allows him to create a balance with the people and the land. The film documents the emotional journey of this complex man who learns the benefits of a communal life that is free of politics. 

Israel, 2008. Running time: 60 minutes. In Hebrew with English subtitles.
