Rock in the Red Zone

Rock in the Red Zone is an intimate portrayal of life on the edge in the war-torn city of Sderot. Once known for its prolific rock scene that revolutionized Israeli music, the town has been the target of ongoing rocket fire from the Gaza Strip. Through the lives and music of Sderot’s diverse musicians and the personal narrative of the filmmaker, who ends up calling the area home, the film chronicles the town’s trauma and reveals its enduring spirit.
