Klara Hakdoshah (Saint Clara)

Author : Ori Sivan & Ari Polman

Available : Rented
Age Group :Adults
Based on a story by the Czech writers Pavel and Yelena Kohout. Winner of Israel?s 1996 equivalent of the Academy Award. A futuristic Israeli film about a clairvoyant seventh grader named Clara, a Russian immigrant to a small Israeli town in the Negev who lives in a trailer at the edge of town. Like many adolescents, she hates her teachers and principal at Golda Meir High School. The town is thrown into a tumult by her arrival (i.e. - is this a metaphor for the arrival of new immigrants), and she must deal with her fame as a fortune teller (forseeing the winning Lotto numbers), and must choose whether to lose her gifts in return for the love of the local rebel hunk (i.e.- is this a metaphor for assimilation) or to keep her mystical powers. A story of teen love of the anarchic rebellion punk variety. (Lots of nutty Russian characters from Israel?s Gesher Theatre Troupe)
