Films in this package

Open Your Eyes

Ilana believes herself to be a liberal Israeli woman until she arrives for her monthly treatment at the eye clinic to find that her regular doctor’s replacement is Arab. Faced with the very real possibility of losing her eyesight, she will have to open her eyes to more than she expected.

The Cabinet

A Walk for a Friend

In late August 2018, a team of 30 people from around the world came together in Senja, Norway to break the world record in Highlining (walking on a thin flat rope using only your arms for balance). The record breaking line was 3,000 meters long.

Exit Strategy

Library of God

Knut-Ronny and Børje are carefree, living life one day at the time, but when Knut-Ronny receives a letter from the Library of God stating his life isn’t important enough to be included in the Holy Collection, he has to prove his worth, and their friendship is put to the test.
