Director Statement

“Not Today. Not Now.” is a story that depicts the atmosphere at my childhood’s home after my older brother’s death. The lead character is based on my father. He was the one to find my brother’s dead body and decided to prevent the grief from my family. My father’s inability to cope with the tragedy, led me to write a script that presents the consequences of life long hiding of emotions and events.
The constant sense of tension caused a distressful atmosphere, which brings out the contradiction between the pastoral surroundings of the quiet south-eastern Israeli desert, and the noise that was under the ground of our home.
Through their French-Moroccan heritage that represents the house I grew up in, the leading actor and actress, were familiar with the mentality, language and other emotional elements of struggles that french-moroccan immigrant families share.
This might be a personal story that has shaped my personality, but in its basis it is a universal, complex, family drama that takes part in the thin line between dealing with the truth and hiding from it.
