Directed by Tomer Heymann
A touching and humorous film about loss, life chances, love, family, illness, the end and the beginning, I AM NOT is also about the search for roots and the therapeutic role of cinema, which can be an escape or create new worlds. This bittersweet family story is abundantly saturated with emotions, although its main character has serious difficulty with showing them. Oren is a young, Israeli man, diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, and the fact that he is an adopted child makes it difficult for him to adapt. Suddenly, his life changes with the help of a camera, which becomes an extraordinary therapy tool, assisting him on a long journey which takes Oren and his family to Guatemala in search of his identity. Running Time: 96 minutes
Guest Speaker: Ehud Levy, Oren’s Father and Subject in the Film via Zoom
Q&A moderated by Tom Needham, Host of The Sounds of Film at WUSB radio.
This screening is graciously co-sponsored by the North Shore Jewish Center in Port Jeff Station and Temple Isaiah in Stony Brook.
