Counting Sheep

Keren Gueller’s work, Counting Sheep, corresponds with one of Israeli children’s constitutive albums, Ha’Keves Ha’shisha Asar(The 16th Sheep). The work alluds to the gap between the idyllic superficial picture we have of childhood and the cracks that are formed within the image and reveal a reality that is usually censored and deemed unfit for children’s eyes. Bringing together two innocent entities -children and animals-the lyrics of the album’s title song, written by Yehonatan Geffen, depict a boy who tries to lull himself to sleep by counting the sheep passing over his head.

Director: Keren Gueller

Producer: Chen Scheinberg, Ben Hagari

Production Company: The New Fund for Cinema and TV, Noga Communivation - Logi Channel

Film Name in Hebrew: לספור כבשים
