The later discovery of a long-missing reel, including multiple takes and cameramen staging scenes, complicated earlier readings of the footage. Presented is the raw footage in its entirety, falsely showing the 'good life' of Jewish urbanites. Included is an interview, and more

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce. Only rabbis can legitimate a marriage or its dissolution.

But her husband Elisha will not agree. His cold intransigence, Viviane's determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the judges shape a procedure in which tragedy vies with absurdity, and everything is brought out for judgment, apart from the initial request"--Director's Fortnight

Taking place in an Israeli suburban town, Tom Shoval's debut feature juxtaposes a family melodrama with a psychological thriller haunted by the specters of class struggle and the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Teenage brothers Yaki and Shaul (played by twins David and Eitan Cunio) kidnap a wealthy high-school girl and hold her in their basement, hoping to use the ransom to cover their parents' debts. This "master plan," however, quickly goes awry, and as time passes, they realize that their family home has been transformed into a battleground, where any passing child or neighbor might turn them over to the police
Stefan Braun( Visual )

More than 16 years have passed since furrier Stefan Braun passed away, but for Eliezer Rath, his lover and life-partner for 39 years, Stefan's heart is still beating. Eliezer has recorded hundreds of tapes in which he tells Stefan about the events of the day, sings to him, and includes him in his thoughts and longings. Their love story began in the 1950's in a young conformist state where homosexuality was outlawed. After Stefan's death, Eliezer Rath was forced to prove his love for his life-partner. He is confronted by Stefan's cohesive family who raise doubts and suspicions about Stefan's last days in light of the will he left behind. Conversations held between Eliezer and Stefan's family, rare recordings, personal diaries, hundreds of stills and old 8mm films tell the fascinating and complex love story of furrier Stefan Braun and tailor Eliezer Rath
