In the bubble

"This is the bubble, it allows me to say: no, there is no war"

Living, talking and hanging out with Dalia’s friends in the homes and streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, we realized that there are no borders between war and peace, curfews and nights out with friends, beach parties and violence. 

In such a context, one develops the unimaginable ability to maintain normality within a war-ridden society. Behind the lines of conflict there is always a mental and physical space to which one retreats, 

we call this THE BUBBLE.
