Short Films  

What brings together a group of horses, a young chef, an intensive theatre play and a unique guy on a roof longing for love? They are all part of a new film compilation called “North Lens” coming from docuvillage Multicultural Center.

The six documentary shorts produced by students from Israel and Germany were shot during an intensive workshop within the old city of Acre, Israel. They represent the cultural diversity and complexity of Arab-Jewish coexistence.
