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.

With routine familiarity, and without taking her eyes off the black and white monitor, Timmy surveys the border from her post. Between the monotonous shifts of military service she manages to construct her own autonomous creative space. But reality is encroaching more and more on her safe haven.
