War. Room, 2018

"Visually innovative, experimental representation of one gay man's traumatic experience of military service in the Israeli army. A reminder that war damages on all sides, and in those societies, which are increasingly becoming more militarised, violent combat is not the solution to resolving conflict."

The jury's reasoning for choosing the winning film - War. Room - Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival 2018

War. Room is an experimental short film in which the director/artist takes upon himself all roles of filmmaking, as he fuses the creation process with the creation itself. The artist reconstructs his memories through a fictional manner, to create a retrospective view on the traumatic scenes he went through in the Israeli army, as a gay soldier.
