Barash

Barash

 

“...fresh, frank look at coming out and coming of age in contemporary Israel” — Variety

 

 

“A female-focused Israeli rebel romance” — The Hollywood Reporter

 

 

Described as the Israeli Blue Is the Warmest ColorBarash vividly captures the heady energy and infatuation of youth, set against the backdrop of the Arab-Israeli conflict. With conservative, detached parents and an older sister who has mysteriously vanished from the IDF, 17 year old Na’ama is bored of her sleepy suburbia. But when a new girl appears at school, she sends shockwaves through Na’ama’s rigid domestic sphere, propelling her headlong into a dizzying world of sex and drugs.

 

 

A vibrant coming-of-age tale, Barash premiered at the San Sebastian Film Festival, and won Best Script, Best Actress and Best Actor at Haifa International Film Festival.
