  • ŻEJTUNE

    LANGUAGE Maltese Comedy-Drama/Musical GENRE The production budget in USD: $950,000 Confirmed budget in USD and source: $47,350 — Malta Film Fund (Screen Malta), Development Grant ​PRODUCTION BUDGET Company name & city: Solari Productions Sliema, Malta Contact email: alex.p.camilleri@gmail.com Contact telephone number: +1 507-261-3363 Rebecca Anastasi (Nizza Films, Malta) worked in international film production for seventeen years. She was a programmer for Valletta Film Festival, spearheading events including the conference on the Cinema of Small Nations. In 2021, she produced LUZZU, a Sundance-winner and international festival breakout, which sold in territories worldwide. She is a visiting film lecturer at the University of Malta working towards her doctorate, and an alumna of Berlinale Talents (2021). In 2022, she established her company, Nizza Films. Ramin Bahrani (Noruz Films, USA) is an Oscar-nominated writer, director and producer. His films have premiered in either the Cannes or Venice Film Festivals, where he has also served as President of the Debut Film jury. Film critic Roger Ebert named Bahrani “the director of the decade,” and his cinematic work is housed in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. Bahrani’s latest film, THE WHITE TIGER, was nominated for an Oscar, BAFTA, and was viewed globally 27 million times on Netflix. He was a producer of LUZZU. Alex Camilleri (Malta) will also produce through Solari Productions. ​PRODUCTION COMPANY PROFILE As I did in my debut, LUZZU, I will take audiences past the touristic view of Malta — in ŻEJTUNE we’ll discover charming non-actors and a totally unique musical tradition. I want to surprise viewers with complex characters, unexpected humor, and a fresh twist on genre.  ŻEJTUNE is a “neorealist musical” combined with a road movie. It’s also a deeply personal, universal story about finding hope after your world ends — a pandemic film that isn’t about the pandemic at all. I can’t wait to take you on the road to ŻEJTUNE. DIRECTOR'S NOTE SYNOPSIS A contemporary comedy-drama set in the colorful world of Maltese folk music, featuring real artists from this unheralded community. Mar Zahra is in a rut: both her marriage and career fell apart, and at age thirty, she thinks life is over. A chance encounter with the elderly troubadour, Nenu, opens her ears to the strange and beautiful tradition of għana, Maltese folk singing. The music brings new hope into her life, but forces a personal reckoning with the painful secrets buried in her family tree. ​ Rebecca Anastasi (Luzzu Ltd) , Ramin Bahrani (NORUZ FILMS) SCENE PITCH Rebecca Anastasi (Luzzu Ltd) , Ramin Bahrani (NORUZ FILMS) Producer: ​ & Alex Camilleri ŻEJTUNE 10 Lab Edition: , Year 2022 Back To Participants PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS PARTICIPATION REGULATION SERIES LAB PARTICIPANTS MENTORS PROFESSIONAL GUESTS JURY PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FAQ SERIES LAB FILM LAB MENTORS JURY DECISION MAKERS SCOUTS AND PITCHING PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ FILM LAB HOME TEAM NEWS LABS HOME FILM LAB WHO'S WHO MENTORS JURY SCOUTS AND PITCHING DECISION MAKERS PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ

The silence about it hovers across all socio-economic classes in Israel. All young men go to the Army. And it is still considered an honor to be a fighter, or a mother’s fighter. Even in our literature there are few critical references, and in our cinema, there are none at all. Into this vacuum enters my main character - a single mom, surrounded by men who are connected to the army in one way or another: Her father sufferers from PTSD from the Yom Kipur war; her son is an enthusiastic combat fighter; her Ex (her son’s dad) is also, at arms length, committed to the army; and her new lover lost one leg in one of the Lebanon wars. My character, Khani, needs to find her own real voice, in order to keep her son alive. An organic voice that is connected to the first and very initial step of being a mother – which is to give life, and nurture it. This is a political film, a call for revolution. I want to expose the collective repression of mothers in Israel, as maybe, if they begin to refuse sacrificing their children, war will not be the main solution to our conflicts. DIRECTOR'S NOTE SYNOPSIS Synopsis Chani, a teacher from Haifa, a poetry lover and a single mother to Ido, is impatiently waiting for his discharge from the army. But exactly on the due date for his release, the third Lebanon War breaks out. The condition of her shell-shocked father, Yakov, starts to deteriorate and Ido calls to say that all discharges have been put on hold. The angst-ridden Chani tries to get him back home, appealing to the kindness of the clerks in charge and commanding officers. Ido returns. Chani is ecstatic believing her attempts were successful only to discover that he returned for just one night to demand of her to stay out of it. Her spirit is broken when she discovers that in fact discharges were not suspended but it’s Ido who volunteered to fight. Their symbiotic relationship goes downhill, and that is a chance for Michael (whom she met at the poetry group) to reach her heart. Ido returns to his border post and the battle on that front flares up. A few days before he is to be sent into Lebanon, Chani decides to take matters into her own hands. ​ Adi Bar-Yossef SCENE PITCH Adi Bar-Yossef Producer: ​ & Netalie Braun Oxygen 9 Lab Edition: , Year 2021 Back To Participants PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS PARTICIPATION REGULATION SERIES LAB PARTICIPANTS MENTORS PROFESSIONAL GUESTS JURY PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FAQ SERIES LAB FILM LAB MENTORS JURY DECISION MAKERS SCOUTS AND PITCHING PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ FILM LAB HOME TEAM NEWS LABS HOME FILM LAB WHO'S WHO MENTORS JURY SCOUTS AND PITCHING DECISION MAKERS PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ

  • Seven Chapters in Survival

    LANGUAGE Hebrew Drama GENRE Production Budget $1,050,000 ​PRODUCTION BUDGET Production company profile Transfax Film Productions was established in 1989 as an independent production company specializing in feature film production and co-production. The company has produced over 40 feature films and international co-productions -many winning international prizes including Keren Yedaya’s Or (Camera D’or)& That Lovely Girl, and A Strange Course of Events by Raphael Nadjari (Quinzaine des Realisateurs) and Our Father by Meni Yaish. Production Company Transfax, Tel Aviv, Israel marek@transfax.co.il +972 50 523 8766 Producer profile Marek Rozenbaum, Producer, Israel Marek Rozenbaum holds a degree in Social work and Film from the Tel Aviv University. He has directed 2 films and produced over 40 feature films and international co-productions, among them award-winning films that have received worldwide recognition. Mr. Rozenbaum is the recipient of five Ophir Best Film Awards. He served as Chairman of Israel's Film and Television Producers Association and today is a Member of its Board as well as chairing the Israeli Academy of Film and Television for a decade. ​PRODUCTION COMPANY PROFILE Director’s Note When I was seven and a half, I lost my mother. Six months later, I was sexually abused. During my teens, I was diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder. My father and his wife didn’t know how to handle my emotional state, and sent me to a Society for Protection of Nature hiking camp. Their hope was that it’ll offer me the healing I needed. I did. In camp I met boys and girls my own age, who like myself were labeled as “at-risk youth”. One a month we’d go on exhausting hikes in different locations across the country. During those hikes we started to bond, and for the first time in my life I had real friends who served as a sort of alternative family to me. This hiking camp group changed my life forever, and is the inspiration for the “Survival Camp” where the film’s main character - Rafaela - is being sent. Rafaela’s emotional journey, her trauma and the main conflict she deals with throughout the plot are based on my own biography. “Seven Chapters in Survival” is a journey to the heart of Israel’s periphery: be it geographically, culturally or socially. The film’s main character and her friends all come from dysfunctional families, and are forced to survive and grow out of nothing. The film showcases the wild beauty of these untamed teenagers, their spirit, their courage and their desire to grow and become strong, independent persons despite the unbearable environment in which they grew up and their terrible personal stories. The geography of the film - all the way from Eilat in the south to Hermon in the north - reflects the main character and her friends, the wild landscapes referencing their spirits. During the main characters’ journey, they meet various characters (people and animals alike) who are usually exempt from public, cultural and cinematic discourse. The film focuses on these “transparent” people and locations, giving them the center stage. In all the films I wrote and directed there was always a female heroine who the plot revolved around. My heroines all reflect the physical and emotional journeys I’ve been on, as they face different struggles specific to the female experience. My inspiration for the film’s directing-style, general atmosphere, tone and art are derived from films such as: “Badlands” (Terrence Mallick), “Happy as Lazzaro” (Alice Rohrwacher), “Whale Rider” (Niki Caro), “Beasts of the Southern Wild” (Benh Zeitlin), “Princess Mononoke” (Hayao Miyazaki), “Rosetta” (the Dardenne brothers), “American Honey” (Andrea Arnold) and Nomadland (Chloe Zhao)... Films where the heroines go through a turning of age journey and find salvation and peace by connecting with their wild sides. The film is divided into seven chapters, referencing Jewish mythology where the world is created in seven chapters - including the creation of man. It is a narrative of evolution, of blossoming out of the wilderness, out of the fringes, from nothing. The concept of creating something substantial out of so-called barren land excites me. A lot. DIRECTOR'S NOTE SYNOPSIS Synopsis Rafaela (15) is kicked out of the house by her stepmother Rachelle (40) and her biological father Mike (45), after having told them a secret that could potentially destroy the new life they’re trying to build. She’s sent to “Survival Camp” for the summer holidays, a program designed to set at-risk youth straight and teach them Jewish and Israeli values. Under the instruction of Yaron (20), the “Survival Camp”’s questionable counselor, Rafaela and the rest of the program’s participants hike across Israel: from Eilat in the south to the Hermon in the north. Rafaela is forced to withstand difficult physical and mental survival challenges, all while battling internally with her traumatic past and gnawing doubts: the difference between truth and lies, reality and imagination. During this cross-country journey Rafaela is exposed to the Israeli periphery: geographically, culturally and socially speaking. She acquires her very own set of survival skills, as well as the tools to unpack the unbearable reality she’s been living in. She also forms an unbreakable bond with the other participants- who serve as a temporary replacement family. With the help of her new friends and various characters she meets along the way, Rafaela slowly breaks free of the symbiotic relationship she has with her father, faces the doubts and guilt eating away at her, finds the answers to the questions tormenting her and breaks free. ​ Marek Rozenbaum SCENE PITCH Marek Rozenbaum Producer: ​ & Odeya Rosenak Seven Chapters in Survival 9 Lab Edition: , Year 2021 Back To Participants PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS PARTICIPATION REGULATION SERIES LAB PARTICIPANTS MENTORS PROFESSIONAL GUESTS JURY PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FAQ SERIES LAB FILM LAB MENTORS JURY DECISION MAKERS SCOUTS AND PITCHING PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ FILM LAB HOME TEAM NEWS LABS HOME FILM LAB WHO'S WHO MENTORS JURY SCOUTS AND PITCHING DECISION MAKERS PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ

    Add a Title Add a Title Send Send Adi Bar Yosef Producers: ​ , Rachel Elitzur The Sterns Lab Edition 2 ​ PITCH LOGLINE Despite being an ultra-orthodox, unmarried young woman, Michal (19) has no intention of being passed from her father's control to her husband's authority. She dreams of becoming a successful adman at the company run by her father. SYNOPSIS Michal (19), a young girl, ultra-orthodox, unmarried, dreams of breaking free from societal norms to become an adman in her father's advertising agency. Despite her responsible nature and comedic flair, she shoulders the burden of running her home for her mother, pregnant for the ninth time, and an absent father engrossed in his ad campaigns. To pursue her dream, Michal contemplates an arranged marriage, fearing the alternative of raising her own children. She privately arranges a match with Yanki, a Yeshiva student, leading to a ""dating-less"" deal. Meanwhile, she forms a tender connection with Naomi, the daughter of the agency's cleaning lady. As Michal navigates potential husbands, her relationship with Naomi blossoms. This forbidden love threatens Michal's reputation, job, and family. Amidst the challenges, Michal rises as a brilliant copywriter, facing the clash between her orthodox upbringing and the feminist identity she develops. Balancing her father and grandfather's perspectives, Michal confronts the patriarchal norms of the ultra-orthodox advertising world. Her journey transforms her into a strong, cunning professional, challenging societal norms. In the pursuit of her dream, Michal faces a dilemma between traditional marriage and a passionate love story with Naomi. Each choice entails heartbreaking sacrifices. Ultimately, Michal emerges as a heroine who finds herself, makes her own choices, and takes decisions that are entirely her own, even if they come with pain. WRITER'S STATEMENT The Ultra-Orthodox world is highly conservative, making it challenging for women like me. As the eldest with seven siblings, I took on the responsibility of essentially raising them. Despite dreaming of becoming a filmmaker, such aspirations are forbidden in my community. The expected path involves finishing school, getting married, having numerous children, and only then, perhaps, dreaming of a career. I followed the prescribed path dutifully, adhering to societal norms. However, I chose not to have children. Determined to pursue my passion for filmmaking, I made the unconventional decision to divorce my husband. This marked a bold step towards realizing my dreams in a world where such choices are often met with resistance. PRODUCER'S STATEMENT "The Sterns" gives us a glimpse to the Jewish Ultra- Orthodox world, which is usually kept behind closed doors. The creator, who is an up-and-coming Orthodox writer and director brilliantly manages to tackle the burning and unspoken issues of feminism within her closed community, through an area of a PR advertising company. These issues are universally relevant and appeal to a wide range of viewers.
