The Decision Maker
The fictitious Prime Minister of Israel, Gideon Harel, is about to take part in a TV election debate and the polls are not showing good results. Taking a break from the preparations, he wanders about the TV studio and finds himself in the tape archive, where he discovers a report that summarizes his life and career, which is being prepared for broadcast in case he dies. Watching the tape will change the way Harel sees himself, his achievements and his life.

An Article of Hope
The remarkable story of Israels first astronaut and the journey of a tiny Torah scroll into outer space. Israeli Air Force Colonel Ilan Ramon and six other astronauts perished on February 1, 2003, when the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated upon reentry. The son of an Auschwitz survivor, Ramon felt a deep sense of obligation to Holocaust memory. Among the few objects he took into space was a miniature Torah that survived Bergen-Belsen. The film parallels the fateful journey of this singular artifact and its profound symbolism with the life story of Colonel Ramon and his close bonds with fellow astronauts.
