Small People Wait

Christian Krüger-Johnsen, Denmark, 1997


For more than ten years, the Palestinian Nadi has worked as a cook in a café in Tel Aviv owned by a Jewish family. Unfortunately, the border to Gaza is closed. Nadi is caught in a high political game and is no longer able to continue his work in Israel. He is harassed by Israeli soldiers and assaulted by other Palestinians. The situation is hopeless. All Nadi can do is wait.
