Shooting The Israeli Man (cut To The Chase)

Jerusalem Film Festival

A cinematic puzzle made up of hundreds of Israeli feature films from the 1960's till this day. Fragments of shots, pieces of scenes, and short clips from different periods, styles, and colors, are assembled together to create a new narrative: the story of the Israeli man, as seen on screen, searching for love; between wars, from recruitment, to marriage. Cut to the Chase is a love song to cinema, to Israeli filmmakers, and to the heroes of its screen; a cinematic poem built from classical, as well as forgotten moments, in the compilation tradition, that in this new context emphasize and elucidates additional meanings.
It is simultaneously a light and serious look upon the Israeli man; amusing and heart rending.
