“Homesick” is our graduation film, created as part of our studies in the screen arts department at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. The film has won numerous awards and has been shown in more than 65 film festivals in over 40 countries. The film tells the story of a young girl after a crisis in her life that forces her to return to her parents' home. Her reappearance shakes the delicate balance in the family nest, yet brings with her warmth and old happy memories.
