New Israeli Cinema From Gaza and Sderot: Sisai and My Family's Pizza
David Gavro, Israel/Ethiopia, 2005, 56 min.
20-year-old Sisai, an Ethiopian immigrant, lives in Israel with his adoptive family, the Gavros. His father returns from Ethiopia with news about the whereabouts of Sisai's biological father. Confused by the news and the realization that he has to confront his past, Sisai does not share his family's excitement. He is too busy with his own news, Sivan, his girlfriend, is pregnant. The film's director, who is also Sisai's brother, joins him and their father on a journey to Ethiopia in search of identity, blood connection, love and longing.

Ronen Amar, Israel, 2003, 52 min.
Maksim, a sleep addict, asks his parents to help him buy a pizza place he co-owns. As soon as the work begins, the parents realize they will have to invest a lot more than just money. With dad as the delivery boy and mom as the oven cleaner, the film provides a true profile of the average Israeli immigrant family in the new millennium. Perhaps the same applies to your home and family?
