Central Bus Station

documentary / 2018 / Czech Republic / col. / 75 min.

Only recently, Tel Aviv’s Central Bus Station was still the largest in the world. But this oversized space only serves more than its original purpose to bring in masses of people who, confused by its complicated interior design, succumb to shopping fever. Over time this concrete monster, which won’t be easy to tear down, has become a temporary refuge for people on the margins of society – refugees, criminals, prostitutes. Like its main protagonist, the tourist guide Yonathan, the film’s director is fascinated by one of the wonders of the world of redundancy and the microcosm of the people who live here.
