A new film by Amos Gitai is hitting theaters in Israel, after being featured in several festivals around the world. The film stars Juliette Binoche, Liron Levo, and Dana Ivgy.
The plot revolves around a Jewish French woman who goes on a journey to reconnect with the daughter she had abandoned 18 years ago, who is now living in a Settlement in the Gaza strip. Their emotional reunion takes place during the unilateral disengagement operation of August 2005.
This is not the first English-speaking movie Gitai makes about sensitive Israeli issues. In 2004, he directed “Free Zone”, starring Natalie Portman and Hana Laszlo.
