My Beloved Uncles
A poetic quest for a long-vanished uncle inspires questions of identity, fate, dreams and hopes. Obsessed with the disappearance of his uncle Yisrael some 65 years ago, filmmaker Eran Barak returns to his family’s old neighborhood. In his search he turns to his various relatives: Uncle Gavriel, who was just released after 35 years in prison; Uncle Aryeh, wallowing in thoughts while lounging on his mother's sofa; and Uncle Uri who makes a living collecting scrap-metal and looking for a meaningful relationship. A story of broken dreams and disappointments. A look at those who remained in the neighborhood, and were left to suffer the pain of non-integration into Israeli society.
