Movie and a talk

In her film "Blessing," Bat-El Moseri describes a challenging family dynamic that provides a glimpse into a familiar LGBT+ experience related to the ability, or rather the inability, to feel a sense of belonging at home, the place that is supposed to be our “safe place”, a place where we are supposed to be truly comfortable with who we are.
The conversation with Bat-El delves into the creative process, the journey from a teenager in a risky situation in Bat Yam to becoming a respected cinema and television creator, and experiences of not fitting in during this journey. How do individuals cope with the feeling of not belonging in one place and create a refuge in other places? Is it even possible to have a sense of safety and belonging when feeling like a stranger in our home, our family?

The conversation also addresses the context of multiple identities. The film's protagonist is a lesbian and Mizrahi woman, a rare combination in Israeli cinema. The internal dialogue that engages many in the LGBTQ+ community is expressed in the film and the conversation with Bat-El, allowing for new, different, and refreshing perspectives on coping with multiple identities and the desire to belong, which is not always successful.

The film "Blessing" (12 minutes) won the Ophir Award for the year 2020 and additional awards in Israel and abroad.
