  • BACK TO THE FATHERLAND

    BACK TO THE FATHERLAND

    Life in Israel is stressful, but this is not the only reason why young secular, liberal Jews like Dan, Guy and Gil turn their back on the “holy land”. They decide to move to Germany and Austria – of all places. A slap in the face for their families. Why return to the land of the perpetrators? A process of emancipation with a special responsibility.

    CRAZY HORMONES – MEN AND WOMEN IN THE MENOPAUSE

    Is menopause really a deficiency disorder, as the huge range of drugs, medicines and hormones suggest? Or simply part of our aging process? Do men go through menopause?

  • OPTIMISE YOURSELF!

    OPTIMISE YOURSELF!

    Nowadays, the desire to optimise ourselves affects almost all spheres of our life: from education to diet, from career to how we handle relationships. Becoming better is our goal, developing our individual potential in the best possible way rather than living according to predefined patterns. We meet people who dedicate themselves to self-optimisation, the ideology of achievement and enhancement utopia, and we interview scientists and intellectuals who have spent years studying this social transformation and its consequences.

  • WOMEN AT THE TOP

But with travel in and out of Gaza closely monitored, the play is usually performed by an ensemble from Ramallah. A film about living under occupation and the power of theatre and art.

    When the 60-year-old father of the film director regularly flies to Thailand to enjoy the company of women her own age, she is understandably embarrassed. But things are starting to get serious: The wedding is looming. Is this love, asks his daughter, or more of a “business”? A light-hearted and personal film.
