Beyond Pirelia

Israeli teenagers usually distance themselves from their parents to assert their independence. When they finish their army service, they set off on a tour to discover the world, then return to their parents’ embrace. Helen Kra, the director of this film, never saw her son return. Amir Kra was only twenty years old when he was killed in an attack on the Dilaat Outpost in Lebanon’s Security Zone. In this film Helen sets out to find her son, Amir, who never returned and whom she never really knew. Her quest raises many personal, ethical and national questions that extend far beyond Amir’s own family.
