Film@IIJS: Shooting Life

  • Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies 1140 Amsterdam Ave. New York United States (map)

Yigal, an unemployed and recently-divorced filmmaker from Tel Aviv, accepts a position teaching film in Sderot. Though his high school students are slow to warm to him, Yigal gains their trust by coaxing them to film their own stories of love and loss as rockets from Gaza fall around them. (84 min)

Supported by the generosity of the Kaye and Radov families.
