When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born in 2005, self-taught cameraman Emad Burnat, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera.

At the same time in his village of Bil’in, a separation barrier is being built by Israel on the villagers’ cultivated lands and they begin to resist this decision.

They are joined by Israeli and international peace activists. In the following years, Burnat films this peaceful movement, which is lead by two of his best friends, Adeeb and Phil, while filming the growth of his son at the same time.

Very soon, these events begin to affect his family and his own life.

Night raids by the army and daily arrests in the village scare his family. His friends, brothers and even he are either shot or arrested. One camera after the other, is either shot or smashed. Each camera unfolds a part of history and his story.

Eventually, Burnat joins forces with Israeli filmmaker, Guy Davidi and together they create a powerful piece of work.

“An engrossing, out-of-the-ordinary film” (The Hollywood Reporter)

Mixed Feelings (Regashot Me’oravim)

  Israel/Norway 2016, R: Guy Davidi, 78 minutes, OmeU

TICKETS-ONLINE

Mixed Feelings is an inspiring story about cultural resistance of Israeli director and teacher, Amir Orian, a once successful actor that left his blooming career to create an alternative theater in his own apartment.

This documentary tries to create space for artistic expression and the discussion of alternative points of view in a country troubled by destructive nationalistic forces. When Israel attacks Gaza, he can’t withhold objections to the war, while his students show resistance to the discussion. Performing onstage, their deep emotions are revealed, yet their defiance threatens the existence of the theatre.

Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner, director Guy Davidi, created a staggering film that captures the ongoing collapse of Israel’s civil society through a sincere portrait of an artist, who believes in the power of art to create change.

When Israel attacks Gaza, acting teacher Amir Orian can't withhold his objections to the war. While performing on stage, his students' deep emotions explode, yet their protest against his views threatens the existence of the theater he created in his own living room. Despite the conflict Amir encourages his students to find their strength to be vulnerable and weak on stage. It's his modest way to create change. Filmed between two wars, 'Mixed Feelings' captures the ongoing collapse of Israeli civil society. Yet it's a compassionate story about cultural resistance through theater and the controversial nature of genuine political education.
