Wall

Director
Moran Ifergan
Country
Israel
Year
2017
Duration
64 min

Winner of Best Israeli Film Award at the 2017 Docaviv festival, Wall is a highly original film, where fragments of private phone calls between the director and her family and friends complements, or often clashes with, the footage, filmed over a year at the women’s section of The Western Wall. Ifergan employs both aural and visual channels to observe the tension between the public and the private spheres in Israel. The result is both a candid account of a marriage breakdown and a detached observation of state and religious rituals.
