In 2006, Israel produced two of its first children’s films – and they are some of the most moving, imaginative films we’ve ever had the pleasure of watching! Back by popular demand, both films are being screened in the stunning surroundings of the Manchester Jewish Museum, along with workshops. Be sure to catch these amazing films as this may be your last chance!!

Little Heroes (Giborim Ktanim), Itai Lev Hebrew with English Subtitles
Erez is a young boy struggling to cope with his father’s death and deal with school bullies. His life changes when he meets Alicia, a Russian immigrant, her brother, and a boy called Lior from the nearby kibbutz. Together they form an unlikely heroic team and embark on a courageous journey together into the Negrev desert…

Love & Dance (Sipur Hatzi Russi) Eitan Anner Hebrew with English Subtitles
Israel’s answer to Billy Elliot (and we love it even more), Love & Dance is an irresistible film about a young boy torn between the conflicts of his Russian-born mother and Israeli father. When a crush leads him to take ballroom dancing lessons, our unlikely hero uses the Waltz and the Cha Cha to bridge the gap of his fractured family.
