Synopsis

AFRICA

When retired 68 year-old Meir discovers that his 30 years of planning the annual village celebration have been summarily discarded and the job has been given to inexperienced local teens instead, the ground beneath his feet begins to give way. In his effort to restore a sense of meaning and vitality, Meir begins to rebel against the inevitable: the betrayal of his physical body, the growing distance from his children, and the loss of relevance.

Reconstructing fiction from real life, AFRICA is the cinematic journey of an aging parent crafted by the hands of his loving son, in this deeply personal story on reinventing oneself, as years go by.

Reviews

Intimate portrait of a man who finds himself rebelling against the irrelevance of old age
–  Screen International

a touchingly well-observed study of long-time marrieds starring the filmmaker’s own parents as lightly fictionalized versions of themselves.
