Vasermil

Narrative | 2007 | 90 min.
Directed by: Moshon Salmona

Vasermil tells the story of a group of adolescents who live in the same tough neighbourhood of Beer-Sheba, growing up in an unforgiving environment, pinning their hopes on football as a way out. Shlomi lives with his widowed mother and works as a pizza boy; Adiel, who is of Ethiopian descent, has to look after his young brother and sick mother; and Dima is a new immigrant from Russia, whose family barely makes ends meet. United by a coach in their shared passion for football, the three must learn to work together, accept each others' difference, and overcome old prejudices--to compete for the game and for a brighter future.

“An authentic portrait of life for first and second generation immigrants to Israel” - Dan Fainaru, Screen International

“A winner! The young cast is outstanding! It’s also one of the most unflinching looks at the tension burbling under the surface in modern day Israel that I've ever seen.” - Craig Phillips, Green Cine Daily
