Spirits of Inshreen

One of the most talked about films of the year is coming to the screens in Israel with nine Oscar nominations under his belt, and he is expected to win several of them.

Martin McDonagh's black comedy ("Three Signs Outside Ebbing, Missouri") follows Padraic and Colm (Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson), who reach a crossroads when the latter decides to end their friendship.

Confused Padreic enlists the help of his sister (Kerry Condon) and the local policeman's son (Barry Keogan) to restore friendship, but his plan runs into difficulties following an unusual ultimatum from Colm.

A knock on the door

The director-screenwriter M.

Nate Shamlan ("The Sixth Sense," "Split") returns in a new psychological thriller that follows a family vacationing in a remote cabin.

When four armed strangers break into the scene, they require them to make an impossible choice: sacrifice one of them - or the world will be destroyed.

Will there be a twist at the end of the film this time too?

Starring Dave Batista ("Guardians of the Galaxy," "A Well-Written Murder: A Greek Mystery"), Jonathan Groff ("Mind Hunter") and Rupert Grint (forever Ron Weasley from the "Harry Potter" film series).

St. Omar

Rama, a journalist and professor of literature, travels to a town in northern France to cover the trial of a young immigrant from Senegal accused of a serious crime.

When Zo confesses her guilt without providing any explanation of the circumstances or motive that led her to commit the horrible act, Rama is surprised to find parallels between her life and that of the same young woman.

Director Alice Diop's first feature film won the prestigious Jury Prize at the last Venice Film Festival.

Everything that breathes

The brothers Saud and Nad are amateur veterinarians who run a makeshift clinic for birds of prey in the basement of their home in New Delhi, India, where they try to save hundreds of birds.

The work in the crowded house, where they live with their families, is not easy, certainly not when the sounds of tweets and whistles are heard in the background alongside those of racial incitement.

Despite everything, the film is full of optimism that warms and conquers the heart, and contributed to the fact that it received an Oscar nomination.

Wednesday, on Yes Doku, HOT8 and Cellcom TV



The successful psychological suspense drama returns in a new season, which will be divided into two halves.

Once again, the creepy character of Joe Goldberg (played by Penn Badgley) will be at the center of the series, when once again he will have to find himself dealing with the consequences of his past actions.

The fourth season will take place in London and Paris, which will probably contribute quite a bit to the development of Goldberg's obsessions, which have turned him into a character that, despite his terrible actions, is hard to take your eyes off of.

Thursday, Netflix

the embassy

This new sitcom, whose creators include one of the beloved "Kopa Rashtih" screenwriters, follows Yitzhak (played by Itzik Cohen), the first Israeli ambassador to the United Arab Emirates - and the not-exactly-successful team that accompanies him in the country.

The difference between the Israeli culture of rounding the corners and the strict one of the Emirates, and the not small difference between the Israelis who are just looking for an opportunity to get rich and the residents of a country where money is poured like water, puts the entire embassy staff in difficult situations that may cause a diplomatic incident or two.

Starring Lidor Adri, Ido Mosari, Esnat Fishman, Maya Wertheimer and the stand-up artist Yuval Hekhalai, who is one of the creators of the series.

Glee: The Price of Fame

When the musical series was broadcast in 2009-2015, it immediately became a real cultural phenomenon.

Many of the actors who participated in it became big stars, won many awards and were the focus of the gossip of those days.

Despite the huge success, it already received negative buzz in real time, among other things because of the death of its star, Cory Monteith (who died before its completion) and rumors of a toxic work environment (to this day, some claim that the part of Lea Michele, who played Rachel The megalomaniac, was very significant in it).

Other tragedies accompanied the series even after it ended, and now this documentary series will try to reveal the truth behind the "curse" that accompanied it.

Available on Discovery+


Infected is hosting a special show

For the first time in the country, the Israeli electronic ensemble that became a legend in the field, and managed to plow the whole world in its 25 years of activity, will hold an unusual hybrid performance.

It will begin with a "classic" performance, during which the artists who participated in the duo's last album, from Ninet Tyb and Tikva 6 to May Sepadia and Bliss, will appear.

After that, Amit Dovdevani and Erez Eisen will move to the front of the stage and headline the DJ performance, just like they know how.

Amir Dadon celebrates a decade of the album "There is no end"

Since the talented musician broke out more than 10 years ago, he has become one of the most popular names in the country.

And even collaborated with the best local artists.

On the occasion of the celebrations for his second album, Dadon will host Ricky Gal and Barry Sakharoff in a show where hits from that album will be performed (such as the theme song and "Not for nothing") alongside others, where he will show once again why he is loved so much.

the ad

More than 30 years have passed since the death of the Italian-Jewish writer-playwright Natalia Ginzburg, and for the first time one of the many plays she wrote is being adapted in the Israeli theater.

At the heart of this humorous drama is Teresa, who rents a room in her house to a young student named Elena, after the separation of Teresa and her husband, Lorenzo.

While Teresa struggles to deal with the breakup, the husband returns and visits the house, which opens the wounds of their broken relationship.

Merav Grover, who returns to the "stage" after 20 years, stars in the main role, with Oded Leopold, Sapir Azoulai and Shahar Karmi also participating.

The show is directed by Roy Horowitz.

Under Construction

After the Israeli theater group Davi participated in theater festivals around the world (and even won the Golden Hedgehog Award), it embarks on a journey across the country with a show centered on three eccentric bachelors who live in a cramped and falling apart apartment.

They enter a wordless humorous world full of absurdity and imagination, through which they captivate the audience in a fun and heartwarming way.

Starting Friday, throughout the country

Comedy and humor festival

The funniest festival around will be held for the ninth time with a diverse team of some of the most prominent comedians in Israel, who will hold debut shows and unique combinations.

The most prominent show will be a tribute show to Sefi Rivlin, Legal Bashan and Mordechai "Popik" Arnon, who grew up on the same street in Rishon Lezion.

Many beloved names will participate such as Tovia Tzafir, Rivka Michaeli, Hana Leslau, Oshik Levy, Maya Avraham, and more.

In another notable show, Tzipi Shavit, Shlomo Baraba and Odia Koren will appear for a one-off evening.

The list of additional shows is long and laugh-out-loud.

Starting Tuesday, Rishon LeZion Culture Hall

The journey to the star

The new presentation of Yuval Hambalel, based on the tape and the book of the same name, combines the best known and beloved songs of the popular children's star.

If that is not enough, these, just as we have known so far, also convey positive messages to children wherever they are, and there is no doubt that this is a big bonus for the viewers of the show - and also for their parents.

The beloved children's series returns in a new season, which is expected to be more surprising and original than ever.

This time Mrs. Bloom will return to take revenge for the gold she received that turned into mere stones, a particularly cruel pirate will join the plan, and the gang will go on a journey to remove a terrible curse that was placed on Jerome Castle many years ago.

Among the talented participants are Efrat Boimold, Lirit Belvan, Yuval Segal, Omri Lex, Lian Ben Yishai and Yonatan Bar-Or.

Face to Face

In a new exhibition, which will be on display until February 23, the works of 100 children from the 5th-6th grades from eight Jewish and Arab schools from Tel Aviv-Jaffa and Mevt Yam will be displayed, which they created in the last year in workshops led by the artist Hanoch Piven.

The children together created characters that represent their faces, the faces of the future generation of Israeli society.

The creation method was based on choosing objects, arranging them and gluing them, which freed the children from the need for artistic knowledge, and thus they received a sense of success and ability.

In troubled days as we have been experiencing for a long time, the children participating in the exhibition give us hope about what awaits us in the coming years.
