Other Israel Film Festival Spotlight: Coffee

The 4th Annual Israel Film Festival began last night, and Movies With Abe is proud to offer you a spotlight on some of the films being presented. Visit the festival website for a complete schedule of screenings for the films.

Coffee: Between Reality and Imagination

This five-part series is made up of short films that are inspired by coffee. Some are connected thinly by a momentary mention of the drink, like the first, a couch-set, intimate audition. The most entertaining and invigorating of the five, reminiscent of last year’s Oscar-nominated animated short “French Roast,” follows a short period of time in the life of a coffee shop owner, displeased by his newly received order of coffee cups with handles. The collection of films was made by Israeli and Palestinian filmmakers and spans comedy and drama. All in all, the 68-minute presentation is an interesting look at how the same starting point can inspire such diverse and equally compelling results.
