On Wednesday, August 8, a film by Adam Weingrod, “The Island” will be screened at Cafe Shapira.
This is an intimate look at the human mosaic that forms the French Hospital St. Louis – Hospice for terminally ill patients located on the tense border between East and West Jerusalem, opposite the walls of the Old City. For two years the director accompanied the patients and the therapists – each one with his personal story. The film has moments of humor and sadness from life itself between the walls of the hospital.
After the film there will be an open discussion with the film’s creator, Adam Weingrod.
The film won the 2017 Israeli Documentary Film Competition.
