Based in Israel, the United States and France, Gitai has produced an extraordinary, wide-ranging, and deeply personal body of work. In around 40 films, both in documentary and fiction form, Gitai has explored the layers of history in the Middle East and beyond through such themes as homeland and exile, religion, social control and utopia. This all-new box set contains six previously released fiction films. Includes: Devarim - The first of Gitai's acclaimed trilogy of films about life in Israel's major cities. Set in Tel Aviv during one very hot summer, it follows the intersecting lives of three young men: a photographer, a would-be musician, and a lawyer, Yom Yom - The second film in Amos Gitai's celebrated City Trilogy, Israel's preeminent writer-director weaves, a darkly comic tale of characters driven by divided loyalties and neurotic inhibitions (The Village Voice) in the mixed nationality Mediterranean port city of Haifa, Kadosh - Incandescent portrayals by two Israeli actresses illuminate the plight of women within Orthodox Judaism today. Using superb cinematography, ethnic music, and authentic Jerusalem locations, Israel's best known filmmaker renders a heartbreaking chamber story of two sisters and their broken marriages. Hands down the most internationally acclaimed and popular film ever from Israel, Kippur - Acclaimed filmmaker Amos Gitai's semi-autobiographical account of the 1973 Yom Kippur war from the point of view of a young soldier. Kippur is not a traditional blood, guts and glory war film. There are no men in battle, only the rescue crews trying to pick up the broken pieces. Kippur is the shell-shocked memoir of the director Gitai, himself a participant in the conflict, and of the days that changed his life forever, Kedma - May 1948, some days before the creation of the state of Israel. Upon arrival in Palestine, a boat of concentration camp survivors is confronted by hostile British soldiers. The hopeful emigrants have then to follow the Jewish forces to immediately take up arms against the Arabs, and Alila - Amos Gitai's Alila tells the story of over a dozen distinct characters who inhabit an apartment complex located in a rundown neighborhood of Tel Aviv, Israel.
