"The Wooden Gun"
Directed by Han Moshenson
Set in the tense
atmosphere of Tel Aviv of the 1950's, this incisive film focuses on two rival groups of
preteens whose behavior, motivated by their interpretations of the concepts of heroism,
nationalism and friendship, raise hard questions. Portrayed are first generation sabras
(native-born Israelis) who are separated by a tremendous psychological gap from those who
came to Israel from Europe, many of them Holocaust survivors. Hebrew with English
