Mirrors – A portrait of the town of Yeruham 2016

Four short films that were born in a workshop held in Yeruham by film directors Robbie Elmaleh and Meital Abukasis. The local participants’ films present personal stories dealing with childhood, adolescence and the search for identity. They examine the importance of grace and charity in this life and in the Hereafter; the secret that attracts youth to participate in the Selichot prayers in the local synagogue; the fragile relations between the town’s veteran community and the new, fervently religious, Garin Torani; and the power of a woman’s basketball team as a source of female empowerment.
