Budapest to Host Israeli Film Festival
Budapest, November 24 (MTI) – Nine feature-length films and documentaries will be shown at the Israeli Film Week in Budapest between December 4 and 9, the embassy said.
A highlight of the event is Nadav Schirman’s psychological thriller The Green Prince. It tells the story of Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a founder of Hamas, who becomes an informant for the Israeli secret service after his arrest.
Another hit is Talya Lavie’s Zero Motivation, a partly dark and often hilarious portrait of the day to day life of young female soldiers in a remote Israeli desert.
The festival will also feature Gilda Inbar’s documentary The Hungarian Cube: A Journey with Andre Hajdu, telling the story of the Hungarian-born composer and his six sons who reject to follow their father in his footsteps.
“The films to be shown at this year’s festival present the current situation in Israel and bring the society of modern Israel closer to Hungarian viewers,” said Ilan Mor, the Israeli ambassador, in a release.
The films will be shown in Hebrew with Hungarian subtitles. For further details visit www.facebook.com/Israelinhungary.
