Film@IIJS: Here We Are
Join Columbia University’s Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies for a Q&A with Nir Bergman (director) and Shai Avivi (lead actor.)
Nir Bergman’s warm and moving tale of parental devotion focuses on divorced dad Aharon (Shai Avivi), who has given up his artistic career to look after his autistic son Uri (Noam Imber). They live a quiet life, and as the boy reaches young adulthood, his mother decides that he needs to be placed in a boarding facility more equipped to cater to his needs. Resisting this change, Aharon runs away on a road trip with Uri. With gentle humor, this beautiful film—winner of multiple Ophir Awards, including Best Director—examines the intricacies of love, disability and community, and change. (94 min)
