MANY poor Palestinian labourers and workers must illegally cross the border into booming Israel to get jobs on construction sites. The scenario explored in Nine Star Hotel uncannily recalls that of poor Mexican workers who illegally cross into the United States. With bed-rolls and rucksacks on their backs these Palestinian men climb walls, sneak through forests and dodge indifferent streams of traffic coursing down a fourlane highway, all while keeping a sharp eye out for the border police and soldiers who regularly patrol the border areas. Eventually, they reach their destination: a cluster of tiny hovels, sheds and makeshift lean-tos. These dwellings are hidden on the rocky hillside surrounding a sprawling, eerily empty concrete construction site. For the next several weeks, this will be their home as they work as cut-rate day labourers for Israeli contractors. Israeli filmmaker Ido Haars remarkable documentary closely follows the lives of two Palestinian workers. They are Ahmad, an incorrigible collector of junk, much of it tossed out by wealthy Israelis, which he plans to use back home, and Muhammad, a quiet, thoughtful young man with sharp, self-critical opinions about the Palestinian predicament. Granted complete access into their lives, Haar follows Ahmad, Muhammad and the men with whom they now live as they work, eat, talk and run from the police. Some are arrested and returned home, only to come back a few weeks later; others are injured or fall deathly ill. While the Security Wall designed to separate the West Bank and Israel is mentioned several times throughout the film the men realise that once it is completed, they will be out of work the issue of Israeli homeland security and illegal border crossings is never directly broached. The film explores the secret, symbiotic relationship Israel shares with its embattled neighbor to the west, an economically depressed land that Israel has come to depend upon to support its rapid growth. Nine Star Hotel is a powerful and sad film. It screens tonight in the Cutting Edge timeslot at 8.30pm on ABC.
