With sardonic humor, filmmaker Avi Mograbi takes stock of his personal situation and that of his country, as Israel marks its 50th anniversary.
Originally commissioned by state television to celebrate Israel’s 50th anniversary, Avi Mograbi’s semi-documentary rejects the occasion’s lavishness in favor of a non-linear approach that embodies the country’s fragmented history. The very idea of land ownership is dissected with a sardonic humor.
