Do No Harm

In Do No Harm, Ami, 30’s, visits his severely ill brother,
Lavi in hospital. Lavi is terrified and the two share a most meaningful hug. Ami barely notices the negligence that his brother continuously suffers and when he arrives later at night Lavi is no longer there. Discovering Lavi’s notes left behind, Ami is left with a choice as to how to deal with his legacy...

Do No Harm is a short film about love between brothers. It is about the tragedy of a young life lost, opportunities missed and the need for “attention, attention (to be) paid”.
It deals with the themes of love, loneliness, neglect and negligence, and the resilience of the human spirit.
The controlling idea is that love and attention must be paid to defeat criminal negligence.
