Overview

As arguably the most important director in the history of Israeli cinema, Amos Gitai grew up in the Middle East, ensconced by an endless cycle of violence and bloodshed that commandeered his attention and ultimately became the focal point of all of his work. A filmmaker set apart by his earnest and passionate commitment to social justice, Gitai unsurprisingly racked up countless awards and nominations at such festivals as Venice and Cannes (including many Golden Palm nods), while drawing constant critical praise. Honing in exclusively on Gitai's fiction work, this unique and comprehensive collection from the Kino label presents six of his most beloved features. Titles include Devarim (1995), Yom Yom (1998), Kadosh (1999), Kippur (2000), Kedma (2002) and Alila (2003).
