The Death Of Cinema and My Father Too


A father and son try to freeze time through cinema, but the father’s cancer threatens to cut their quest short. While the father is unsentimental in his approach toward his imminent death, his son disconnects from reality in a desperate last attempt to see his father as a hero. Tel Aviv goes up in flames in the fictional story, but the father’s real world does not end with a bang but with a slow vanishing whimper.
