Every film by Damien Chazelle, the Academy Award-winning director-screenwriter of "La La Land" (who also directed the wonderful "Whiplash"), is a reason to party - and his new film is further proof of that.

In this epic, set in Los Angeles in the 1990s, viewers follow the rise and fall of several characters during a time full of rampant corruption in the movie city that is Hollywood.

The many stars participating in the film include Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire and the promising Diego Calva.

David the second king of Israel

The life story of former Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister David Levy is at the center of this documentary, directed by Robbie Elmaleh and Amir Ben David.

All the tensions that shape the Israeli identity are included here: center and periphery, Mizrahim and Ashkenazim, the "first" and the "second" Israel.

After about 15 years of almost complete media silence, the 85-year-old Levy takes stock in front of the cameras.

In the film he talks about his life as a politician and statesman, who was a pillar in the story of the State of Israel for many decades.

After the success of the previous season, the series based on the book by Sharit Yeshi-Levi is back for a second season, which will continue to follow the events of the Jerusalem Ermoza family in the days before the establishment of the State of Israel and during World War II.

In the new season, the family will run into a host of difficulties, either from the professional world or from the romantic world.

The stars of the previous season, such as Michael Aloni, Hila Saadia and Sovel Ariel Or, will return this time as well, and in the new season they will be reinforced in the form of Aki Avni, Michaeli Givati, Kim Or Azoulai, and even the singer Shiri Maimon.

Aviram Katz

Yehezkel Lazarov plays Aviram, a successful writer who receives an offer to create a story in sequels for a well-known newspaper.

The problem: he has been in a writing block for quite some time.

The solution comes from his neighbor Victor (Shashon Gabai), who asks him to give his opinion on a book he wrote.

Despite his reluctance, Aviram reads the book - and discovers that it is the best thing ever written.

So good, he decided to steal it for his new job.

This comedic detective drama was created by Dana Moden (who also stars) and Eitan Tzur (who also directed), based on Asher Kravitz's book "Writing Like God".

Among the other participants: Yaniv Biton, Joy Rieger and Gila Almagor.

Bile juices

The exhibition of the couple and the artists Merav Kamel and Khalil Belvin presents a deceptive and mysterious world, built of works on paper and a large group of sculptures made of a variety of materials and revealing a gentle, poetic, grotesque and funny world.

A playful spirit and lust for life are found in this exhibition, and these manage to move between them and the forces of destruction and decay, with a circus and carnival atmosphere felt in the background - until everything develops into a metaphor about the circle of life.
