“Like an Israeli American Beauty… a poignant and political family drama” — The Hollywood Reporter
Having retired after 27 years of military service, David faces existential uncertainty regarding his new civilian identity. Desperately seeking some form of catharsis, he innocuously sets into motion a series of events that plunges his family into the unknown. Beyond the Mountains and Hills toys with chance and misfortune and slowly lifts the facade of a seemingly perfect family.
This film premiered at Cannes Film Festival (Un Certain Regard), and lead actress, Shiree Nadav-Naor, was awarded Best Actress at the Jerusalem Film Festival. Nominated for six 2016 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars), including Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress and Best Script.
