Winding (Ptaltal)

, 2015

A homage to Israel’s most infamous river, the Yarkon, Winding offers an immersive study of an oft-maligned feature of Israel’s geography. Painting a portrait of a river that flows through the heart of Israeli society, this documentary tracks the history of its flow: from the settlers at the advent of the 19th century, to its modern day reputation as toxic eyesore, and to the Maccabiah disaster. Winner Best Israeli Documentary Film at Haifa International Film Festival.
