New Israeli Cinema From Gaza and Sderot: Chicken and the Egg & Sderot, Last Exit
Chicken and the Egg (Play me Allegro)
Alon Alsheich & Eran Yehezkel, Israel, 2005, 40 min.
On the border between Israel and the Palestinian authority, 4 km from Gaza, lies the Nir-Am kibbutz. In spite of Israeli missiles and helicopters soaring above their heads, and Palestinian rockets falling in their yard, Julia, a Russian immigrant, and her five-year-old daughter, choose not to give up. Between taking her child from a violin lesson to a dancing class, Julia takes her political left-winged ideology one step further. In doing so, she starts a chain reaction that will lead to results she could never have anticipated. This is an intimate and surprising story of a mother and daughter who raise each other in their barbed-wired Garden of Eden.


Sderot, Last Exit
Osvalde Lewat, Cameroon/France/Belgium, 2011, 80 min.
This new documentary by French-Cameroonian journalist and filmmaker Osvalde Lewat is a high-risk attempt to portray the contradictions that arise among the multiple ethnicities and peoples in the Film School of Sderot, situated only two kilometers from the Gaza border in Southern Israel. Created with the mission of bringing peace through the ethical, ideological and artistic use of film as a language, the institution indeed cannot avoid becoming a microcosm of the geo-political landscape in which it is located. Like the region, the Film School is precariously weighted by the daily interactions and tensions between Jews, Muslims, Christians, Palestinians, Israelis, and constituents from the left-wing radicals as well as the ultranationalists.


Followed by a Q&A with Carmen Oquando Villar and curator and director Avner Faingulernt
