About the Event

Welcome and Our Condolences - Israel / Short / Russian, Hebrew with English subtitles / 2012 / 26 minutes

The year is 1991, the beginning of the massive Jewish immigration wave from the USSR to Israel. The stressful immigration experience is enhanced up to absurd proportions when a family's elderly aunt dies on the plane just before it touches down at Ben-Gurion Airport. Now, the family will have to go through various levels of bureaucracy with an immigrating corpse. Will she be considered an immigrant or returned to the USSR?

Like a Fish Out of Water - Israel / Feature / Hebrew with English subtitles / 2007 / 50 mins

The question on Marcelo's mind is whether he will ever learn Hebrew well enough to get a job on an Israeli TV soap opera. The very secular, Argentinean 30-something has just immigrated to Israel with few job prospects despite being a noted actor in his home country. Taking a crash course in Hebrew, he not only gains language skills but also a crush on his teacher, who unlike him, is religious. Can he convince her that he is worthy husband material? A delightful rom-com with a twist.
