The Little Things


“The Little Things” tells the story of a unique bond between Michal, a documentary director from Tel Aviv and Yudal’e, a 19 year old from a religious Jewish settlement in the west bank, the youngest son of the famous peace activist and anarchic religious leader, Rabbi Menachem Fruman. Michal is taken by Yudale’s charm and becomes his film teacher. With the camera he receives from Michal, Yudale documents his dying father, and uses his filmmaking journey with Michal to navigate the multiple life paths that open before him as he comes of age.
