My Beloved Uncles


Following the disappearance of his uncle Israel Amerusi from Pardes Katz some 65 years ago, the film's director returns to the neighborhood. In his search he turns to his relatives: Uncle Gavriel, who was just released after 35 years in and out of prison; Uncle Aryeh, wallowing in thoughts on his mother's sofa; and Uncle Uri who makes a living collecting iron and looking for a relationship to rescue him from his loneliness. A story of the broken dreams and disappointments of the people who remained in the neighborhood, left to suffer the pain of non-integration into Israeli society.

Supported by Joshua Rabinovich Film Fund, Yes Documentary Channel, Gesher Film Fund, Ostrovsky Film Fund, Mifal Hapis.

"In his film My Beloved Uncles assisted by a distinctive and riveting cinematic language director Eran Barak shows us the fragile circular reality of life, that always underscores its inherent loss. And by means of his uncles – desperate to find their place, love, and redemption"
