Mamis Tvalebi

Amit, a young woman in her twenties, is living with her traditional Jewish parents. One ordinary Saturday afternoon, her mother urgently wakes her up, and asks her to go to the synagogue, since her father didn't come back from the Morning Prayer, and she is worried.

Amit obeys her mother's call and enters the sacred male sanctuary, only to find her father there, drunk. In the synagogue she also meets another significant figure in her life, she is forced to confront her father, and must break the rules in order to bring him back home.

Director Biography - Tammy Mamistvalov

I'm Tammy. I started my way in the filmmaking world after finishing my degree in Communication, when I have come to the realization that I want to write and create in a more artistic way. I signed up for script writing, directing and producing learning in Camera Obscura School of Art in Israel, where I delved into the art of visual storytelling.

During those years of learning in camera obscure I've experienced in making short videos, writing scripts and directing actors. I have won the first prize on a short video I've made and submitted to a local festival in Israel. At the same time, I have experienced in my work as an editor in writing articles, interviewing and telling stories.

Director Statement

This is my first film as a director and a writer. I have made this film with my heart wide open, and my mind as well. It was the heardest project I have ever made, and the most amazing thing in my life. My experience in screen writing and directing only made me wanting to create more and continue in this path, and I hope it will be that way.
