Synopsis: After the death of their mother, a brother and sister search for their father who abandoned them as infants. Eliav Lilti’s startling, audacious, and surprisingly polished micro-budget feature film might seem unbelievable — if it wasn’t based on a true story. With a dry sense of humor, a series of to-the-camera dialogues and explicit and incestuous sex scenes, Urban Tale heralds the emergence of an important new director, and perhaps a new direction for Israeli cinema.
Filmmaker Bio: Eliav Lilti is an experienced director in the Israeli television industry. He previously served as the head creative director for the promo department at Israel’s leading commercial channel, Keshet.
