One Day After Peace

user
Director: Erez Laufer & Miri Laufer.
Can the means used to resolve the conflict in South Africa be applied to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict? As someone who experienced both conflicts firsthand, Robi Damelin wonders about this. Born in South Africa during the apartheid era, she later lost her son, who was serving with the Israeli Army reserve in the Occupied Territories. At first she attempted to initiate a dialogue with the Palestinian who killed her child. When her overtures were rejected, she embarked on a journey back to South Africa to learn more about the country’s Truth and Reconciliation Committee in overcoming years of enmity. Robi’s thought-provoking journey leads from a place of deep personal pain to a belief that a better future is possible.

the Seven Tapes

Director: yair qedar.
"The Seven Tapes" is a cinematic journey into the world of Yona Wallach, a legendary poet, who's radical life and poetry ended in an early age, leaving behind a myth and a trail of admirers. More than 25 years after her death, seven recorded tapes from her last interview are discovered. In these tapes, Wallach confesses on her life journey: her attraction to madness, her experiments with drugs, her relationship with god and about the dangers of writing. The film weaves her testimony with interviews, with rare archival footage from the sixties to the eighties, with her poems and with animation that revives Wallach's thoughts, images and visions. THE SEVEN TAPES is a troubling encounter with an exceptional artist, whose riddle remains unsolved to this day.
