In this striking debut, a group of Arab and Jewish women gather in a video workshop in which their differences and similarities dramatically emerge. Winner, Best Israeli First Feature, Jerusalem.
Based on true events, Cinema Sabaya takes the audience into a video workshop in which women from different backgrounds come together to learn basic filmmaking to document their lives. Young film director, Rona, leads the workshop, encouraging the women to delve into their lives and share their stories with each other. It’s not long before severe political differences emerge between the women, leading to explosive arguments. But at the same time, the participants, through the films they make, begin to see commonalities in their lives. With both professional and non-professional actresses, and scripted and improvised dialogue, Cinema Sabaya is a fascinating portrait of a moment of connection through the medium of cinema.
