Film programme: Forget & Remember

Friday 8 October, 1.00-5.00 p.m.

In their exhibition, Gil & Moti refer to several films, including Hole in the Moon (1964) and Two Kuni Lemel (1966). These two films were produced by Moti’s grandfather, Mordechai Navon, who played an important role in the Israeli film industry. These films will be screened during this film afternoon in the Jewish Historical Museum’s auditorium. They are in Hebrew with English subtitles.

In Hole in the Moon, a new immigrant called Tzelnik opens a kiosk in the Negev desert, where no one goes. Mizrachi then opens a competing kiosk opposite Tzelnik’s. They survive by selling to each other. Because there is nothing there, they decide to imagine a new world. When this imaginary world comes to life, Tzelnik and Mizrachi are no longer able to distinguish between fantasy and reality.

In Two Kuni Lemel, Rabbi Pinchas searches for a suitable suitor for his daughter Carolina. She is in love with her French teacher, Max, but her father does not want her to marry him. Kuni Lemel is a possible match. Max and Kuni are cousins and are identical, except that Kuni is blind in one eye and has a limp and a stutter. Max tries to pose as Kuni so that he can marry Carolina, until the real Kuni shows up and the confusion is complete.
