Finally, a clip that is relatable to all of us: a fight over film genre that leads to violence.
It's a small sample from Doubtful, which will screen tonight (Sunday, June 3) at the Seattle International Film Festival. The film follows a screenwriter and poet from Tel Aviv who ends up in circumstances he's never encountered before. Here's a bit more from the official verbiage:
"An emotionally scarred writer is sent to teach a group of juvenile delinquents in a small Israeli town, where he discovers a talent for encouraging his students to express themselves through filmmaking and forms a special bond with one troubled teen. Inspired by real events, with the participation of 11 non-actors."
Eliran Elya wrote and directed. The cast includes Ran Danker, Adar Hazazi Gersch, Hilla Surjon, Bat-el Museri, and Liron Ben Shlush. More information about the film is available right here.
Our exclusive clip starts in a genial mood, and then quickly bursts into something else, which makes me quite eager to watch the film in its entirety.
