Rosenzweig Born to Dance(Documentary)
Avigdor Rosenzweig is a tap dancer. In 1939 his dancing saved his life. Today, he is 88 and lives in a retirement home. When Avigdor dances on the parquet floor of his room, he laughs until he’s out of breath, and with the last ounce of his strength he pushes his tired feet to do a few more steps. For Avigdor, dancing isn’t a hobby and isn’t therapy. It’s the way to survive.

Getting Serious
A Jerusalem romantic comedy about a young moderately orthodox man who pretends to be more religious than he is. What happens when his girlfriend discovers the truth?

The Strength to Tell (Documentary)
A film which follows a group of Jerusalem teenagers, victims of broken homes and shattered lives. Participating in Martef, a therapeutic program for at risk teens, they interview surviving witnesses of the 1961 Eichmann trial and create a play based on their stories. The young actors and the aging Survivors develop bonds of empathy and understanding, connected by shared pain and loss. The film is emotional and will be remembered long after viewing.
