Det islandske band Hatari er vant til at provokere alt og alle, men til Eurovision i Israel får de mulighed for at råbe hele verden op.

Det islandske band Hatari er vant til at provokere alt og alle, men til Eurovision i Israel får de mulighed for at råbe hele verden op - hvis de altså vil.

Det pro-palæstinensiske, anti-kapitalistiske, BDSM-provokerende, techno-punk performancekunst-ensemble (!) Hatari gør sig ikke overraskende bemærket med deres optræden til det islandske Melodi Grand Prix. Så meget at de vinder og dermed skal optræde til det internationale Eurovision - i Tel Aviv. Men hvad så? Boykotter man eventet, sluger man idealismen eller bruger man tale- og tv-tiden til at kritisere værtslandet Israel for dets ulovlige besættelse af Palæstina? Islandske Anna Hildur er med bandet hele vejen til den skæbnesvangre finale. Produceret af holdet bag Nick Cave-filmen  ’20.000 days on Earth’.

The Icelandic band Hatari is used to provoking everyone and everything, but at the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel they are facing a dilemma.

The pro-Palestinian, anti-capitalist, BDSM-provocative, techno-punk performance art ensemble (!) Hatari unsurprisingly drew attention to themselves with their performance at the Icelandic qualifiers for the Eurovision Song Contest. So much so that they won and therefore were allowed to perform at the main event in Tel Aviv. But what now? Should they boycott the event, swallow their idealism or use their airtime to criticise the host country for their illegal occupation of Palestine? The Icelandic director Anna Hildur joins the boys in the band all the way to the fateful final. Produced by the team behind the Nick Cave film ‘20,000 days on Earth’.
