A Different War
To mark the 30th anniversary of the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School (JSFS), Generation is devoting a short film programme to the outstanding work of this Israeli film school. Co-curated by Renen Schorr, founding director of the JSFS, and Maryanne Redpath, head of Generation, the programme presents six short films from the years 1997 to 2015 and examines the lives of young Israelis, which have been shaped by conflict and siege: A Scarred Generation.

In the theatre play at the end of the school year, Noni is assigned the role of King David. Even the Prime Minister of Israel is expected to attend. But Noni can't identify with his role in the play – nor with his situation in real life.
