Trailer for the movie "Concerned Citizen" (Berlin Film Festival)

The Jerusalem Film Festival will be launched in about three weeks.

After its directors have already announced the identity of the opening film, its directors announced today the participants in its local competitions - the most prestigious of its kind in the local industry.



In the feature competition, four films will arrive in Jerusalem after premieres at international festivals.

Both of them will be screened at the Karlovy Vary Festival: "June Zero" by the American Jake Paltrow (and Gwyneth's brother), who according to a screenplay by Tom Shoval shot a film in Israel about the Eichmann trial from various points of view, including the officer required to guard the Nazi criminal;

And "America" ​​by Ophir Raoul Greitzer, who previously starred in Jerusalem (and elsewhere) with the wonderful "Baker from Berlin", and now returns to the festival with "America", which as its name implies deals with an Israeli returning to Israel after a long stay in the United States.



Moshe Rosenthal's karaoke will arrive in the capital after garnering praise at the New York Tribeca Festival.

The impressive team includes Sasson Gabay and Lior Ashkenazi, and here too the name implies the plot: an aging couple whose lives are being undermined due to the appearance of a neighbor who loves singing in public.



"Concerned Citizen" by Idan Hagoel was screened at the Berlin Film Festival.

This is the only film I had the opportunity to watch from the list, and it is one of the best Israeli films of recent years.

The citizen by name is called concerned that a foreign worker is leaning against a tree in the gentrification-stricken Tel Aviv neighborhood in which he lives, and this leads to a chain of events and an overwhelming viewing experience from the first second to the last.

Yona Rosenkiar, who won the competition in the past with his excellent debut film "The Dive", will return to it with his second film, "The Road to Eilat", about a journey of a father and son from the north of the country to the southern city by which he is named.

In front of all these secular directors, Rabbi Mordechai Vardi, head of the Beit Midrash at the Ma'aleh school, will also deal with his film "Barren," which deals with a childless ultra-Orthodox couple.




Only two films by directors will enter the competition: "All I Can" by Nevo Friedental songs, with Anya Buxtein as a lawyer involved in a case of sexual offenses;

And Michal Winick's "Marriage Valeria," whose protagonists are Ukrainians marrying Israelis.

The documentary competition, as usual, is quite political.

David Waxman's "Two Minors a Day" deals with the arrest of Palestinian minors and Bilal Yosef's "Living in the Shadow of Death" with violence in the Western sector.

Zohar Wagner's "Savoy" is a docu-drama about the attack on the hotel as it is called.

Asaf Banit and Shai Hazkani's "The Soldier's Opinion" deals with letters from IDF soldiers. As usual in the local check, there are also some stories about people who first discover the truth about previous generations in the family. , Singer Suaad Zaki; In "Heal Longing", director Artyom Dovitsky meets his grandmother for the first time in the Ural Mountains, and "The Partisan with the Leica Camera" by Ruth Velek deals with partisans, of course.

And " Homeboys

" by Tamar Goren and musician Amir Sadeh, on the latter's collaboration with two 18-year-old South Sudanese refugees.

The exemplary "Other Words".

Her new film arrives in Jerusalem after its premiere at the Annecy Festival, the most important animation event in the world.

Also, as part of the restoration project of the Israeli Film Archive at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, the festival will feature restored copies of two Israeli classics, from completely different time periods - Uri Zohar's groundbreaking "Hole in the Moon" from 1964, which is of course also shown as a tribute to a creator who passed away this summer;

And "Atash - Thirst" by Tawfiq Abu Wail, which was a sensation when it came out in 2004.
