Route 443 begins on the shore near Tel Aviv and ends in Jerusalem. This
route has long been a vital communication axis, invested with geographic,
security, and even spiritual significance over the years. It has also been
the site of conflicts dating back millennia. Adopting the playful style of
a video "tour guide", Erez Miller's documentary brings together a series of
vignettes and character portraits to convey a picture of life around, and
along, the highway today. Equal parts satire and investigative report, 443
offers a new and inventive take on that rich subgenre of films on
Palestine/Israel, "the political road movie".
