January 29: The Unorthodox

The year is 1983 and Yaakov Cohen, the owner of a Jerusalem printing press, is tired from being pushed around. It seems that he was born on the wrong side, with the wrong family name and in a moment’s decision he decides to establish a Sephardic-ultra-Orthodox list that will run to the Jerusalem municipality. He gathers two friends, and together they improvise a campaign - no means, no connections, no money, but with much rage, passion and a sense of justice.

February 26: My Australia
Tadek, a ten-year-old anti-Semitic boy in 1960s Poland yearns for Australia. When his older brother Andrzej involves him in a neo-Nazi street gang that beats up Jewish children, Tadek’s mother reveals she is actually a secret Jewish survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto. She tells Tadek they are emigrating to Australia – though this turns out to be Haifa, Israel. When their mother fails to find employment, Tadek and Andrzej are dispatched to a kibbutz, and a culture shock they’re ill-equipped to cope with.

March 26: Magic Men
This is the story of a 78-year-old Greek man and his Hasidic rapper son, who have been estranged for many years. They embark together on a road trip from Israel to Greece searching for an old magician who saved the father’s life during World War II. The journey leads them to absurd encounters, and ultimately brings them to a final confrontation of father and son.

April 23: Arabani
Newly divorced from his Jewish wife, Yosef arrives in the village of Sumaka with his two unruly teenage kids. A suspicious community turns on him and his children, as they start new relationships and romances with the locals, causing tensions to erupt.
