Austrian Film Week in Israel, which takes place from April 3 to 13 at the cinematheques in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Holon, Herzliya and Sderot, celebrates 60 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Austria by showing the best of contemporary Austrian cinema. The film week also marks 15 years since the establishment of the Austrian Cultural Forum Tel Aviv.
Umut Dag, the director of the film Cracks in Concrete, will attend the screenings. The film takes a look at the lives of two young men at different points in their lives. Ertan is released from prison after serving 10 years for a violent crime, and he feels he is a broken man. Mikail is a teen who spends his days hanging out with friends and trying to break into rap music. There is a connection between the two that only Ertan is aware of at first.
