Up the Wrong Tree
Gur Bentvich, 2013
Israel | Hebrew with English subtitles | 93 minutes

New York Premiere!

Actress Sarah Adler in person for Q&A!

Nitz (played to slacker perfection by Gal Toren) returns to Israel from Australia hoping to reunite with his girlfriend, Kesem, and their dog Zorba. When Kesem (the wonderful Sarah Adler) refuses, Nitz installs himself in an empty lot across from her apartment, just as real estate sharks are planning to pave it over for parking. Nitz climbs an ancient tree and soon finds himself at the center of an environmental battle. This warm and funny drama was nominated for five Ophir Awards (Israeli Academy Awards) including Best Actor and Best Screenplay.
