Présentation en anglais

The film News From Home, the final piece of Amos Gitai’s House trilogy, concludes a cycle
that began with the eponymous House, in 1980. In the meantime, Gitai has made more than
40 features and documentaries, and has become a unique and controversial chronicler of Israeli social and political life. This collection of letters, essays, conversations and stills explores not only the title work but Gitai’s latest internationally distributed features, including Kadosh, Kippur, Promised Land and Free Zone. As a body of work, they interrogate exile, migration, war and geopolitics alongside mythologies, religion and the idea of utopia. News From Home includes
a detailed filmography, running from Gitai’s first Super-8 to the present.
