The Lod Social Film Festival, which will take place from November 3-5 at the Hall of Culture in Lod, will feature movies from Israel and abroad that explore themes of social and economic justice, as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The festival, which was created by the Lod Municipality and the Lod Youth Center, along with other groups, will include a competition for films by teens from the Lod area, and a workshop open to social activists.
The opening night film will be Atomic Falafel, Dror Shaul’s irreverent hit comedy about the tension between Israel and Iran over the nuclear program. The movie focuses on how two teenage girls, one in Dimona and on in an Iranian town with a nuclear reactor, manage to save their countries from starting a nuclear war. Its cast includes Mali Levi, Alexander Fehling (currently starring in Homeland), Shai Avivi and Tara Melter.
