HERE WE ARE
Aharon is a single parent who has devoted his life to raising his autistic son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. When Uri’s mother decides that it is time for Uri to live life more independently, separated from his father, they are confronted with a difficult and unusual situation. Aharon is especially worried that Uri, who has relied on his father’s help and care in so many aspects of his life, won’t be able to adjust to live in a care home or an institution. Preoccupied with worries about his son’s wellbeing, he forgets to confront his own emotions whether it might in fact be him, the father, who is not able ready to be separated from his son. Nir Bergman orchestrated a touching story, free of kitsch and cliché, carried out by the talented Shai Avivi and Noam Imber whose portrayal of Uri won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
