Salach Shabati is a 1964 Israeli comedy film about the chaos of Israeli immigration and resettlement. The film begins with Sallah Shabati, a Mizrahi Jewish immigrant, arriving with his family to Israel from Iraq. Upon arrival he is brought to live in a ma'abara, or transit camp. He is given a broken down, one room shack in which to live with his family and spends the rest of the movie attempting to make enough money to purchase adequate housing. His money-making schemes are often comical and frequently satirize the political and social stereotypes in Israel of the time.
