Yesterday, the short list of nominees for the Oscar was published, and it turned out that the Israeli film "Cinema Sabaya", winner of the Ophir Award and Israel's nominee for the Oscar, did not qualify for the list and was left out.

The short list, which includes 15 films, will be reduced in the future to five that will compete for the prize.

Israel has not been nominated for an Oscar since "Footnote" a decade ago, and has not been on the short list since "Foxtrot" half a decade ago.

However, the film that actually managed to make it to the short list is "Black Slide" by director Uri Lotan, which is among the nominated films in the short animated film category.

The film is about her father, a fragile boy on the verge of puberty, who sneaks with his friend nectar to the black slide, the scariest slide in the water park.

The journey to the slide prepares him for the future events that will take place in his home.

"The idea of ​​the film is actually to create a contrast between the place itself, the theater, which is a very fun place - compared to the shocking experience that requires maturity," Lotan said in an interview with Walla!

Culture about a year ago.

"I took a personal experience that I remember very well and tried to convey the emotion. It should be made clear that I cannot reveal everything that happens at the end of the film, but what I can say is that I am returning to an important and great moment that to a large extent shaped me and my life.

"I kept asking myself Why am I returning precisely now to this trauma that we will not reveal because it is a spoiler.

I asked myself why I should open it at all.

I think I had some kind of romantic desire to have catharsis.

There was an attempt to go back to this point and see how relevant it is for me even today.

I think in the end this movie - about the boy who faced the fear of the black slide in the water park - just made me realize how much that day still exists inside me."
