Der «schwarze Stalin» Mengistu terrorisiert Äthiopien. Zehntausende Regimgegner werden gefoltert und ermordet. Tausende Menschen wollen nach Israel fliehen, verschanzen sich in der Botschaft, die neu von Asher Naim geleitet wird. Der Diplomat schachert mit dem Terrorregime, feilscht mit Israel, strudelt zwischen den Blockmächten. Zudem rollt die Volksbefreiungsfront auf Addis Abeba zu. Das ist nicht nur für Mengistu gefährlich, sondern auch für die 15'000 jüdischen ÄthiopierInnen. Gelingt Botschafter Naim ihre Rettung? Ebenso packende wie kritische Geschichtslektion zur «Operation Salomon» mit authentischem Material.
In the 1950s, a young British couple go on their honeymoon. They arrive at “the end of the world,” a small desert town, and decide to stay. In faraway Eilat, Israel’s southernmost city, they begin their new lives, while maintaining their British core. This is the story of Dr. Morris and his wife Fay. For decades, Dr. Morris filmed his family – the births and deaths, joys and tragedies, dramas and quiet days spent in the sun – all unfolding in the heat of the Israeli desert. Years after his death, the forgotten film was found and landed in the hands of directors Itamar Alcalay and Meital Zvieli. Together with the Morris family, they created a spectacular work about an extraordinary family, who are just as ordinary as everyone else.

Jorge leaves his home and family in the outskirts of Lima to try his luck in the goldmines of the Andes, chasing the promises of the mother lode. We follow Jorge through a journey full of omens, where reality and magical thinking blend together, as he discovers that the myth of wealth is built on sacrifices that become ever more tangible – while the boundaries between victims and oppressors get progressively vague and blurred. Mother Lode is a fable about the banality of the descent to hell in times of neoliberalism; it is a paradigm of a relentless world in which everything can be sacrificed in the name of profit.
Christina is a Ukrainian woman who moved to Israel through a ‘bride-to-order’ kind of deal. Compared to her life back in Ukraine, life in Israel is great for Christina. She works in a beauty salon, earns her own money, and loves Israel. Her Israeli husband Michael is also satisfied with this marriage. He is happy that he found a woman who can live with him. In fact, he is so satisfied that he starts his own little business scouting for Ukrainian brides for other Israeli men. Michael’s recent matchmaking is a special one—the bride’s name is Valeria, and she’s Christina’s younger sister. Michael went out of his way and found the best man he could get for her. His name is Eitan, and while he may not be the most handsome guy in the country, he is a good-hearted, generous man. However, Valeria is different to her older sister. And the whole delicate balance is at risk.
