The Green Chariot


    On November 12, 2002, Israel Plus, otherwise known as Channel 9, began broadcasting on the Israeli airwaves. A Russian language channel, it is aimed at the one million plus Russian speakers who have immigrated to the country since 1990. Not always including Hebrew subtitles, it is an example of how many of the immigrants have held on to their language and culture. When religious Israeli Yair receives a package from his aunt in the Ukraine, he is forced to confront his religious beliefs and journey back to the Russian identity he has fought to suppress in The Green Chariot.
