Fifty years after Slow Down by Avraham Heffner was crowned best Israeli short, top alumni of the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School were challenged by that black and white film which penetrates the essence of a quarrel and reconciliation between an elderly couple in 1968 Tel Aviv. The voice-over stream of consciousness of the heroine’s poignant self-examination is the launching pad for six contemporary interpretations of couplehood, laced together in un-sane Israel, 2017. Curated by Renen Schorr, a feature length film with directors Bergman, Shoval, Kenig and Anner who all screened their first features at the Berlinale.
