Winner of 4 Ophir Awards (Israeli Academy Awards) for Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay, and nominated for Best Film. A Cannes 2020 Film Selection. LJFF is proud to be one of the first festivals to showcase this film.
One of Israel's leading film and TV writers/directors, Nir Bergman’s drama touches on family ties, the rights of the differently abled, and the sadness of aging. Aharon, a stubborn, proud, aging divorcé and Uri, his autistic son, have lived a harmonious life together for years, but time is catching up with them. Uri is now an adult, and his mother is pushing for him to enter an institution and shift to more independent living. Both men are reluctant to separate. As the film builds to its climax, it gains in poignancy, and the ending is a beautiful, life-affirming release.
Length: 94 minutes
Location: This film may only be viewed in Kentucky or Indiana.
