Don’t Cry for Me, Edinburgh

A fringe theater group that brings the stories of gay people in Israel to the stage takes on the Edinburgh Theater Festival in Scotland. This film follows the troupe from the birth pangs of their English-language production, through its trip to Scotland – the initial disappointments upon arriving there are swept away when the actors play to sold-out audiences. With its focus on the special dynamic of an unusual group of performers, the film captures all the mayhem that comes from working together so intensely, as well as the relationships between a predominantly gay theater cast and its few straight actors.

Festivals and Awards:

Israel Film Festival, New York, 1996; Israel Film Festival, Los Angeles, 1996; Israel Film Festival, Washington, 1999; Toronto Jewish Film Festival, 1999; Australia Jewish Film Festival, 1999;  Israel Film Festival, Paris, 2002.
