Almost There

From Greece by way of Israel comes a bittersweet travel diary by filmmakers and life partners Joelle Alexis and Sigal Yehuda. Three years after first passing each other in the corridors of a Tel Aviv film school, the women met in a bar and clicked. Their union was tested, however, by their tradition-minded families and the rigors of Israeli life. Frustrated and unhappy, they moved to the Greek island Mykonos. Two years later they came across the tapes of their migration and the soul-searching that accompanied it. The time lapse between when the tapes were shot and their current interpretation of the footage, plus ongoing strains with their Israeli and Belgian families, contribute to a sense of emotional distance despite the intimate subject matter. In Hebrew with subtitles.
