ISRAEL. THREE FILMS ABOUT LOVE

 

PAVEL AND LYALYA (Jerusalem Romance)
by Victor Kossakovsky, Russia. Massachusetts premiere

As the XXth century leaves the mankind struggling in a world of war, hatred and loneliness, Victor Kossakovsky grants us a rare gift: a pure and beautiful film full of love, sadness and consolation.  In a final scene on the shaded terrace where most of the film takes place, Lyalya confesses that 'The world is so beautiful, God does exist on Earth.' And the film, like a pieta, becomes both a pain-filled prayer and a radiant song of praise. Bertrand Bacqué, Visions du réel, Nyon, 2001. Winner of numerous international film festivals awards. 

782, UNDER FURTHER NOTICE
by Na'ama Marinberg, Israel

Yifat, her husband Yedidia and their three little boys live on a remote mountain, 782 meters above sea level, in the West Bank. The nearest Jewish town Itamar is 15 minutes away. For the time being, they are entirely alone.

WE LOVE ISRAEL 
by Michael Brusilovsky, USA. World premiere

Three generations of Russian-American Jews - called rootless cosmopolites in the 40th and Zionist enemies in the 60th in Russia, nicknamed "Russians" in America -- children, parents and grandchildren walk in Boston to support Israel.
