Self Made tells the story of two women – one Israeli, the other Palestinian- who are trapped within their respective worlds. After a mix-up at a checkpoint, they find themselves living the life of the other on the opposite side of the border.

Apparently Shira Geffen is just as odd as her brother, musician Aviv Geffen. This absurdist film gets weirder and weirder as it goes along and by the end, makes no sense at all. But it's still good; the acting, cinematography excellent. I don't really need things to make sense, and it makes sense that things in Israel don't make sense.
I usually boycott movies (and most of things) from this apartheid colonialist country , but I've been attracted by the amusing idea in the trailer. Rather good film. Deserve a remake from Europa (or in the border of South/North Korea!)
