Week of Israeli Films in Moscow

A Week of Israeli Films opens in Moscow on November 18th and runs until November 24th.

"The emotional charge of the pictures that will be screened for the Moscow audience will not leave cinema fans indifferent," Dan Orian, the cultural attache for the Israeli embassy to Moscow, said at a press conference. "Such events will help strengthen cultural links between Russia and Israel." According to Orian, the Israeli film industry is still very young and is only coming into being. Israeli films, he said, focus on all the topics that worry society, from fighting for the right to exist to the struggle against terrorism.

"Attention is also paid to inter-communal and inter-regional relations, as well as to the set of problems dealing with repatriation and the entry of new citizens into the life of Israel," he noted.

The films that will be screened in the framework of the Week of Israeli Films touch on such vital matters as relations between men and women, family problems, and society's approach to the sick and the elderly. All characters are united by the fact that they come from modern-day Israeli society.

The Moscow audience will have a chance to see Dover Kosashvili's "Late Marriage," Amos Gitai's "Kippur" (about an Israeli special task force), Eran Ricklis' "Junction Vulcan" and many more.

The Week of Israeli Films will end with a program of short films created by graduates of the cinema school Maale.
