Shalom India. Directed by Sabrina Van Tassel
Once their army service is behind them, many Israelis flock overseas for a year or two. Out of 60 000 who travel each year, 30 000 go to India. The trip is a way to forget traumatising experiences lived or seen while in the army and to escape the current situation back in Israel.
Every year, some Israeli backpackers get in trouble as a result of drug use and post traumatic stress and have to be rescued.
DVD. 50 minutes.
