Director Statement

We all hurt when we hear about a terrorist attack or a military campaign in which casualties are involved. We weep for the dead, we are shocked to hear how many people
were wounded and then we generally get on with our lives. But the wounded victims’ are left with the challenges, as are their entire families, whose world is turned upside
down in an instant and they are forced to deal with a new and complex life. My father is handicapped and “Beit Halochem” was my ‘second home’. It took me a while to
realize that what I deem natural and ordinary is generally hidden from the public, the pain and hardship is not discussed, only the act of heroism.
I decide to return to the place where I ‘grew up’, the place where war is fought on a daily basis by the handicapped to live as normal a life as possible and just as important,
where the families struggle to get used to a life that is unlike the one they dreamed about and knew. How does this experience impact their personalities and how does it affect
their relationships? Something in the naïve perspective is undoubtedly shattered and how does one go on?
“Shockwaves” is not a gloomy, depressing film. It is a combination of two extremes. On the one hand it brings to the screen the anguish and insufferable pain which the
handicapped and their loved ones must confront and on the other, the hope and strength that fuel them on.
The handicapped victims are not lifeless, predictable or “righteous”, on the contrary. Some feel that they are allowed to think, say and do what others may not.
