Piwnica [פיביניצה]


Yoel is a successful Israeli film-maker, on the brink of making it in Hollywood—his script about his father surviving the Second World War was purchased by a famous producer, and is about to become a TV series. On the first shooting day, his estranged father, who recently lost his wife, shows up in order to talk to his son, with whom he has lost touch since Yoel moved to America. The father comes to speak to his son about the manipulative film industry, which creates Holocaust films and uses them, cynically, to gain millions of dollars, while the industry itself is humiliating.
