Bezalel Film Academy Represents at Ottawa
The film deals with the question whether Is it possible to adapt every child to one specific mold? In an enclosed city, in which everyone looks the same and follows the same path, in which everything is done by the book — one girl sprouts wings. The idea that their daughter will be “exceptional” in their society is too difficult for the family. They feel they cannot allow the difference to continue to grow, and must therefore alter her to fit the existing framework. Now the girl must face her difference and choose between her family and her freedom.

God Is Kidding by Boaz Balachsan
The film illustrates an eternal philosophical question rooted in our sub-conscious and talks about God and faith through the imagination of children. As the film bases itself on interviews with children from the different sectors of Israeli society, we get a wide array of world views represented through the different images of God. The use of animation makes the subject more approachable for all ages and helps us find the added value of the film through the magical world of children's imaginations.
