Seret: Longing

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Savi Gabizon | 2017 | Israel| Hebrew with English subtitles | Starring Ella Armony, Shai Avivi, Shmil Ben Ari| 100 mins

In this bittersweet comedy, Ariel, a well-off childless man, gets a call from his ex-girlfriend. She needs to tell him a couple of very surprising things: first, when they broke up twenty years ago, she was pregnant and went on to have a lovely boy. The second thing will change his life forever. This is a journey that explores the hidden aspects of parenthood beyond giving and responsibility.

“Israeli director Savi Gabizon returns after a 14-year hiatus with his new film, an acute and fascinating reflection on paternity and how to smile in the face of death. Gabizon gifts us this acute, bittersweet and engaging reflection on his role as a parent, the fear of becoming one, selfishness, the ability to open up to the world and to rediscover it, and learning to look beyond the self” -Vittoria Scarpa, Cineuropa
