Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

See cinema of shifting alliances, politics, and lives

This year’s Israeli Film Festival opens with Self Made, Shira Geffen’s follow-up to her Camera d’Or winning debut Jellyfish. The concept – an Israeli and a Palestinian woman start living each other’s lives after a checkpoint mishap – combines fantastical moments with grim realities. And the festival closes with The Green Prince: a see-it-to-believe-it doco about the son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef agreeing to spy on his father for the enemy. Between the two, you can see a goofy '60s-style caper comedy (Kidon), a claustrophobic family drama(Next To Her), a candy-themed political parable (Sweets), a near-future tale of hypothetical peace between Palestine and Israel(Under The Same Sun), and more of the best the region has to offer.
