Beit Avi Chai presents "Moonlight Cinema in the BEIT AVI CHAI Courtyard": Four witty, biting, and often bizarre Israeli classics. Each, in its own way, exposes a facet of the essence of Israeli society.
Editor and Moderator: Or Sigoli, Srita movie blog, Akhbar Ha'Ir Online
Admission: NIS 30; students: NIS 20
Meduzot (Jellyfish)-Shira Geffen and Etgar Keret, 2007
Saturday night, June 1, 9:30 PM
Three stories about three regular women from Tel Aviv whose worlds turn into an utterly fantastic journey. Etgar Keret and Shira Geffen play with the rigidities of Israeli life and create an engrossing fantasy.
Kalevet (Rabies)-Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, 2010
Saturday night, June 8, 9:30 PM
The first Israeli horror film (or almost). A vortex of fear and pain in the Ben Shemen forest, featuring a sister and brother on the run, two shady police officers, a group of young athletes, a ranger, and a psychopath.
With its abundant humor, this brilliant and dark film exposes the currents that flow deep below the surface of Israeli society.
Hakrav al Hava'ad (Battle of the Chairmanship)-Avi Cohen, 1986
Saturday night, June 15, 9:30 PM
One of the wildest and most biting social satires ever made in Israel. Against the backdrop of elections for the prestigious title of chairman of the house committee, an apartment building in central Israel serves as a microcosm of Israeli society. Assi Dayan (script) and Hagashash HaChiver whack every social group with a brutality we can't imagine seeing on the movie screen today.
Made in Israel-Ari Folman, 2000
Saturday night, June 22, 9:30 PM
An apocalyptic comic fantasy set in the Golan Heights during one fog-enshrouded winter. The signing of a peace treaty with Syria leads to the extradition of the last Nazi criminal to Israel. A group of eccentrics trying to reach him meets a zany, crazy Israel we've never seen it before. An early film by Ari Folman, director of Waltz with Bashir.
