The market’s Final Cut strand will award prizes to selected in-the-works projects from Africa and from Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria, while the inaugural Book Adaptation Rights Area will see publishers pitch books ripe for film or TV adaptation.

The European Commission organises two workshops, one on access to finance (Sept 3) and the other on the future of cinemas (Sept 4). The second event, which will be opened by European Commissioner Oettinger, will focus on how cinemas can fully reap the benefits of digital technologies.

‘Decompression’ Wins Jerusalem’s Sam Spiegel Lab Award

10 July 2016 3:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerusalem, Israel — Yona Rozenkier’s feature debut “Decompression” won the top award of the Sam Spiegel International Film Lab’s fifth edition which runs alongside the Jerusalem Film Festival.

Produced by Kobi Mizrahi, “Decompression” received a production grant worth $50,000 from the Beracha Foundation.

“The jury was impressed by the genuine and emotional father and son story from north of Israel to south. The mix between drama and humor is very well balanced. The very visual metaphoric ending is so powerful, you will not forget it,” said Slawomir Idzak, the Oscar-nominated cinematographer who presided the Sam Spiegel Lab jury.

Exploring a dysfunctional father-and-son relationship, “Decompression” turns on an unemployed and depressed young man who travels with his wife and newborn child from the States to his native Kibbutz in Israel to ask his dad for a favor, and ends up embarking on a cross-country road trip with him.

Israeli director Yona Rozenkier and producer Kobi Mizrahi have clinched the $50,000 top prize at the final pitching event of the fifth Sam Spiegel International Film Lab for their road-trip tale of an elderly father and son, Decompression.
