Independent Israeli film about the 2005 Disengagement Being Screened Nationwide
NEW YORK, NY July 30, 2006: This summer, the new independent film “Home Game” will be screened in theaters and community centers throughout Israel. “Home Game” is the first production and screening campaign for Producer Avi Abelow, who works as a management consultant in Tel Aviv.
Realizing that the media coverage of the disengagement focused solely on the political and sociological issues, “Home Game” was produced to give a voice to the little known human story of the former residents of Gush Katif. The film presents people the opportunity to connect to their Israeli counterparts through an experience that few even know occurred. “Home Game” is a captivating new film that encapsulates the surreal story of normal teenagers trying to continue an annual basketball tournament during a very abnormal summer in Israel – the summer of 2005 during the disengagement from Gaza.
This powerful film emphasizes the journey of these teenagers and their determination to win against all odds, both on and off the court.
