MOTO SHEL HAKOLNOA VE SHEL ABA SHELI GAM
THE DEATH OF CINEMA AND MY FATHER TOO
First Israeli film. A young filmmaker films the dying pains of his father, himself a filmmaker. It's all about closeness and distance, the desire to capture every last gesture, not to miss a word.
the Selection Committee
A father and son try to freeze time through cinema, but the father’s cancer threatens to cut their quest short. While the father is unsentimental in his approach toward his imminent death, his son disconnects from reality in a desperate last attempt to see his father as a hero. Tel Aviv goes up in flames in the fictional story, but the father’s real world does not end with a bang but with a slow vanishing whimper.
