Director Statement

It was important for me to bring to the screen a genuine story from the world of a Religious- Zionist Yeshiva, where massive Torah study is the main vocation, yet recognizes the benefits that can be gained through the film media. One of the messages I wanted to convey is the tension between learning and working, especially in the Religious sphere.
Through the plot I wish to show that both fields can be inspired by each other.
In my opinion, this constitutes a real contribution to the discourse in Jewish society today.
I wanted to build a two-way bridge, with new exposure for those unfamiliar with the Yeshiva world, and on the other hand to inspire yeshiva students to invest in creating quality and artistic cinema that expresses true Torah values, by watching a film that manages to bring their world authentically.
The film combines cinematic feature photography and documentary photography by the actors as an artistic tool for expressing an additional layer in the plot - the relationship between 'talking about something' as producing a film and actually 'doing' it.
