Rock in the Red Zone

Synopsis

Rock music is a means of coping and expressing defiance in an isolated southern Israeli border town under nearly constant state of attack in "Rock in the Red Zone." Fear and danger are never far for residents of Sderot, where missiles rain down routinely from militant Islamic forces in the nearby Gaza Strip. Despite the trauma of air raid sirens and mortar explosions, Sderot has also managed to thrive as the epicenter of a music revolution. A united community of young artists—Jews of mainly Moroccan, Kurdish and Persian descent—has found an artistic outlet for their anger and hope, creating music that fuses various world influences, including contemporary Israeli sounds and North African rock.
