SFJFF37 marks 50 years since the 1967 Six Day War with two important works that allow us to reflect on the past, imagine the future and contemplate the reverberations and implications of this paradigm-shifting conflict.
In this compelling and comical saga, two Egyptian soldiers are stranded in the Sinai Desert at the end of the Six-Day War in 1967. Their journey in search of safety and precious water is a testament to human solidarity and the absurdity of war. Exquisitely restored for the film’s 30th anniversary, Avanti Popolo has long been regarded as one of the most important films in the history of Israeli cinema.Read More
