When retired 68 year-old Meir discovers that his 30 years of planning the annual village celebration have been summarily discarded and the job has been given to inexperienced local teens instead, the ground beneath his feet begins to give way. In his effort to restore a sense of meaning and vitality, Meir begins to rebel against the inevitable: the betrayal of his physical body, the growing distance from his children, and the loss of relevance. First feature film by Oren Gerner, winner of Nest Film Students Best Short Film Award with Greenland (2014).

BIOGRAPHY

Oren Gerner (Petah-Tikva, Israel. 1984) studied Directing and Screenwriting at the Minshar School of Art in Tel-Aviv. In 2014 he directed his graduation short, Greenland, winner of the Nest Students Award at San Sebastian, nominated for Best Short Film at the Israeli Film Academy awards and screened at the Sundance Festival. Later he directed Shark Tooth (2016) and Gabriel (2018), a short film co-produced between Israel and France which competed in the Cannes Festival’s Official Short Film Section. Africa is his first feature film.
