Please Behave / SHORTS WJFF: TOUCHING THE INTANGIBLE
dir. Maor Zaguri, Israel, 2020, 29min
Tikva Gideon, winner of 2020 Big Brother Israel, leaves the Big Brother house and returns to the outside world to celebrate her victory, money, and fame. But this is not the world she had previously known. There is no audience waiting for her outside, the taxi driver will not shake her hand, won’t roll up the window, and explains to her why at this time when the world is dealing with a pandemic, Tikva is the last thing on anyone’s mind.
The movie is part of the program SHORTS WJFF: TOUCHING THE INTANGIBLE
