Closing Night of the Romantic Film Festival:

“Romance in a Can”

with support of the Israeli Consulate and the Israeli House

The Passion of Amos GITAI

Yom Yom (Day After Day) (1998)

With Moshe Ivgy, Hanna Meron, Juliano Mer.

In Yom Yom, the second film in Amos Gitai's celebrated "City Trilogy," Israel's

preeminent writer-director weaves, "a darkly comic tale of characters driven by

divided loyalties and neurotic inhibitions" (The Village Voice) in the mixed

nationality Mediterranean port city of Haifa. In spite of blood ties to both Haifa's

Jewish and Arab populations, Moshe (Ivgy) leads a rootless existence. Moshe

becomes entangled in the hidden connections between friend, wife, lover, parent,

Arab and Jew. Underneath its deadpan surface, Yom Yom is a film of incisiveness

and energy that places an individual face on a city's divided identity, and reveals

the heart beneath anonymous modern ennui. Hebrew with English subtitles.

WINNER: Jerusalem Film Festival Best Israili Screenplay, Wolgin Award

"Lighted by...sparks of formal bravado that recall the old radicalism of the

French New Wave." - A. O. Scott, The New York Times

23 SAT 8:30pm: The Passion of Amos GITAI

Alila (2003)

With Yaël Abecassis, Hana Laszlo, Uri Klauzner.

Amos Gitai’s Alila intertwines the stories of over

a dozen distinct characters who inhabit an apartment complex located in a rundown

neighborhood of Tel Aviv. Holocaust survivor Schwartz (Yosef Carmon) has enjoyed

a peaceful existence living in his small apartment with Linda (Lyn Shiao Zamir), a

young Filipino who comes regularly to give him medication and company. One of the

many obtrusive men audible to Schwartz is Hezi (Amos Lavie). He recently rented one

of the nearby apartments in the building for a secret rendezvous with a beautiful and

self-deprecating woman named Gabi (Yael Abelcassis). Their intense, unequal and

often-violent love affair turns Gabi’s life into a public and dissonant garble of

psychological pain and physical pleasure.

Hebrew with English subtitles.

Official Selection: Venice Film Festival, Award of the Israeli Academy

"An engaging subtly arresting drama. Captures the rhythms of the

community with humor and humane spirit." - Time Out

With Gitai’s short film from:

11’09”01 – September 11 (2003)

Eleven directors, eleven films, one story.

Eleven of the world’s best modern directors including Amos Gitai were gathered

together by French producer Alain Brigand to each present a short film about 9/11.

The only artistic restraint was that each film’s length must be exactly eleven

minutes, nine seconds, plus one frame. The result of the collection is world cinema’s

unique and varied response to the tragic event.

WINNER: UNESCO and FIPRESCI Awards at the Venice Film Festival
