Funding and broadcasting: Israeli Channel 8
Documentary, 60 min
A film about one little love and big dreams.
Eyal has been in love with Hila for 3 years. They accidentally met online. He is a film maker; she studies to be an actress. He knew he fell in love with her from the moment he saw her. On set, he is relaxed and natural, but when they’re alone... he becomes shy and is lost for words.
He decides to go on a surreal and crazy trip to the Balkans to learn about free spirit and Joie de Vivre from his admired director, Emir Kusturica.
Despite the difficulties, he manages to find Kusturica and ask him to play a role in a film he’s directing; perhaps this will help him to summon the courage to tell Hila how he felt.
This is a surrealist documentary film about a quest for happiness, courage and fulfillment, which highlights our power to influence the course of our lives.
