SAME RIVER TWICE (2013, 110') – Effi Weiss & Amir Borenstein
Summertime... The Jordan River in Israel is swamped with Israeli vacationers. But can a “chosen people” go on vacation? Effi and Amir, who left Israel ten years ago, take us on an exploratory journey through a land that is both mythical and concrete, where people and landscapes are marked by politics, religion and history. What does it mean to belong to a land? Can one escape it?
MUSEUM PIECE (2014, 12’) - John Smith
Effi Weiss & Amir Borenstein: "In ‘Museum Piece’ one line connects three active components: mind, body (hand), gaze (image). This line is reciprocal, it can move in both directions: at times the thought leads the filming and the image becomes the outcome of the thought. While at other times, it’s the image that the filmmaker sees in his viewfinder, while filming it, which influences his thoughts. The filming is not an execution of a predefined plan, but rather a live process, within which the very act of filming and thinking is documented."
