In January 1996, the tense relationship between the Israeli establishment and the newly arrived Ethiopian community, exploded in a traumatic event, known as the "Blood Affair". Today, with a rising HIV prevalence, the community suffers even greater discrimination. "Across the River" tells the remarkable story of Moshe Rahamim (Tesgau Mahari) - one of the first to arrive in Israel from Ethiopia, who now feels that the responsibility for the entire community falls on his shoulders. He sets on a one man rescue mission to save his community from AIDS. This new film by acclaimed director Duki Dror is a startling documentary about how a growing health problem turns into a daunting socio-political crisis.
