Africa

Africa

In a village close to the West Bank border, 68-year-old retired engineer Meir (a fictionalized version of the director’s father) is abruptly falling out of place, as he has been removed from his long-lasting duties as the local festival’s organizer. Meir channels his frustration in an ambitious DIY project, in an attempt to restore his sense of vitality. His energetic devotion is an act of futile rebellion against the betrayal of his body, his injured masculine pride, the fading out of purpose in life. Blurring the lines between reality and fiction, a tender and redeeming portrait of aging and mortality.
