The Child Within Me


Free entry with Cinematheque membership


Yehuda Poliker, one of Israel’s musical giants – in a retrospective meeting of his own life – stares calmly into the camera; sometimes with longing, sometimes with regret, but mostly lovingly. He watches rare archival footage, some of which are never before seen family home-videos. At times, he joins in on the guitar, accompanying that same stuttering, insecure young man looking back at him from the screen, or his parents singing Greek songs, and sometimes, he just sits silently and reminisces.
In conversation between then and now, in conversation with his friend for the past 40 years, Eti Aneta Segev, images from Poliker’s life join one another, while his touching music plays in the background. The images spark memories that transport us freely between the different junctures of his life.

TLVFest Honorary Award to Gila Almagor & “Tied Hands”

The film tells the story of a sensitive and complex relationship between a mother and her ailing son. Like in Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale “The Loveliest Rose in the World” where a prince must search for a rose to save his mother, who is dying in bed, “Tied Hands” sees a reversal of roles as a desperate mother goes out to find marijuana, to ease her son’s pain. In her turbulent journey in the streets of Tel-Aviv, old truths from her past come back to life and threaten to break down a wall of denials behind which she’s been hiding all her life.

Amazing Grace

Newly-Restored Digital Copy of Amos Guttman’s final masterpiece.

Young Jonathan moves to the city, but can’t find happiness. He meets the older Thomas, who recently returned from years abroad and is hiding the fact he’s been diagnosed with AIDS. The two develop a tender relationship, yet only one of them knows that their time together is about to run out.

“Amazing Grace” was made in the early nineties, when AIDS and HIV were discussed in a very politically incorrect way. Nonetheless, it is still a very touching film, thanks to Guttman’s gentle direction and the excellent performance by the cast.

Amnon Zalait is responsible for the beautiful cinematography of the film and Arkadi Duchin for the wonderful original music. Excellent editing by Einat Glaser-Zarhin.

בעילום שם

כשאודי היה בן 16 הוא חטף כדור בבטן. זה היה כאשר אדם חמוש התפרץ למקום מפגש של נוער גאה במרכז תל-אביב. במהלך הפיגוע הנורא שזעזע את קהילת הלהט”ב, נרצחו ניר כץ וליז טרובישי, ו-11 נערות ונערים נפצעו, ביניהם גם אודי.
כשהוריו ואחיותיו הגיעו לבקר אותו באיכילוב, אודי היה עדיין בארון. שאלות קשות לא נשאלו. היום, 13 שנה אחרי הרצח בברנוער, שמבצעו עדיין לא נתפס – אודי יוצא למסע בו הוא פותח פצעים ישנים, מתמודד באומץ עם הטראומה, ומדבר לראשונה עם משפחתו על אותו ערב והסודות שנחשפו בעקבותיו.
