Join us to watch the documentary about Tel Aviv´s main artery of its life – Central Bus Station.

Central Bus Station is one of the biggest and at the same time, one of the most pathetic stations in the world. Its architect’s visionary plans for a building that will engulf its visitors turned into an endless maze of corridors. The gift for Tel Aviv’s citizens now serves as a haven for refugees from all over the world.

Yonatan has been guiding people through for 17 years already, showing people, who follow, the dark side of the station. He discovers communities in places that were supposed to stay hidden. These communities are overseeing their traditions and values and they want to defend their new home. This way, the building reflects a world of the society outside its walls.

‘Central Bus Station’ (Director: Tomáš Elšík, 2019, Czech Republic, 75mins) is in ENG/HEB/YID. Subtitles are in ENG.

The program is organized by Paideia, Czech Centre Stockholm, Jewish Community in Stockholm and Bajit.

The program is supported by Kulturrådet.

Free entry. The number of places is restricted to max. 50.

Registration is obligatory till the 8th of Oct. 2020
