Fence Your Best, a film by Liat Mer @ Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Haim Hatuel started stabbing his kids at age 5. This is Delila and Maor Hatuel’s family childhood memory. They are now Israeli fencing champions.
Haim Hatuel is a native of Morocco who arrived in Acre when he was 15 years old. A day after his release from the Israel Defense Forces, Haim saw an ad that changed his life: “The best for fencing.” Haim was accepted into a fencing academy, which was a social sport initiative aimed at turning street kids into law abiding citizens who would go on to pursue a career.
Over the next 45 years, Haim Hatuel built a fencing empire in Acre. Just before the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, the family empire is about to crash.
