European premiere 


- Yae, tell me the truth. You think I'm a fascist, don’t you? Almost a Nazi, right?

- A tiny bit.

Robert and Yaela, the director of the film. Father and daughter. He’s in Peru, and she’s in Buenos Aires. At the age of 25, Yaela is combining her search for work with investigation into her father's past. The film is a series of conversations which reveal an antagonistic ideology. Robert's mother emigrated to Israel after spending three years in Auschwitz during World War II and seeing the growth of anti-Semitism in Oradea, her home town in Romania. Robert is a Zionist. His daughter seems to want to reconstruct her father's past to continue conversing. “Is Judaism a nationality? Is there more than one kind of Zionism? Are they like the gypsies? Are we like the gypsies? Is Ben Gurion a hero or a war criminal? Are Israeli Arabs Palestinians? What is a secular state? What does it mean to be Jewish? Just a religion? What is Zionism? Does Zionism segregate? Can you be a Jew without being a Zionist?’
Yaela has a lot of questions.
The film shows the director's investigation, the journey she takes trying to understand her father. It makes use of a range of materials: the computer screen, mobile phone pictures, video calls, notebooks with sketches, tracings, the film script itself, homemade imagery.
