Towards the Unrealistic, the Fantastic: A Tribute to JSFS at the Haifa Film Festival 2019


The central storytelling crusade of the JSFS in the 1990's pinpointed the story, the hero, the location, the "moment to moment" and the emotion. For this tribute, founding director Renen Schorr has selected some of the "simultaneous pearls" of the School's unrealistic and fantastic. Here they are: A soldier enchanted by Pasolini's Theorem, a waitress in a coffee shop that requires complex acrobatic skills, Jerusalemite and universal Don Quixotes, a good-hearted witch, a modern-day vagabond on a passenger van to heaven. Last but not least - The Lost 25 years of Sam Spiegel, a special report by Israel's 60 Minutes.
