Winner of Best Israeli Film Award at the 2017 Docaviv festival, Wall is a highly original film, where fragments of private phone calls between the director and her family and friends complements, or often clashes with, the footage, filmed over a year at the women’s section of The Western Wall. Ifergan employs both aural and visual channels to observe the tension between the public and the private spheres in Israel. The result is both a candid account of a marriage breakdown and a detached observation of state and religious rituals.
Rhoda Wise has fulfilled all that has ever been expected of her. At 75 she looks back, and, speaking candidly to her daughter, tells about the quiet despair lying beneath her normative Jewish family life.
