Strangers No More
Strangers No More directed by Karen Goodman and Kirk Simon was the winner last night of an Academy Award for best Documentary (short subject). The film presents the difficulties and triumphs of youngsters -- children of asylum-seekers and foreign workers -- at a school in South Tel Aviv.
