"Flchkes"

Documentary, 54 minutes

 

The film "Fletchkes" follows five intelligent and diverse women aged seventy-eighty-plus, who stage a professional dance show called "Gila" with choreographer Galit Liss. This is an uncompromising show that challenges a culture that sanctifies youth. The film, as well as the show, looks with open and intelligent eyes at the process of female aging, and at society's attitude towards it. It is based on the participants' personal experiences. The "Flchkes" are the loose part of the arms (in Yiddish), one of the most obvious symbols of the female body's aging, which is usually hidden in shame inside the sleeve, but in the show, as explained at the beginning of the film, it is proudly displayed. The art of dance presents each of the heroines with challenges of body, mind and consciousness, which are not easy at any age but seven times as difficult at their age. In a not-so-simple personal struggle in the face of difficulties, in transitions between tears and laughter, failures and successes, an honest, exciting and intimate portrait of special women who go through a unique and full of life experience unfolds. The film "Fletchkes" was first screened at the Dokaviv Festival, and later at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque and other cinematheques in the country. The film was screened at numerous festivals in Europe, the United States, and China, bought and broadcast by a Canadian broadcast channel.

Reviews

 

"The outstanding achievement of Fletchkes" is in the long - long tongue-in-cheek against the psychological and media brainwashing that puts in the corner ashamed anyone who has already celebrated her 30th birthday. " Maariv, Meir Schnitzer

 

"... the 70-plus heroines of" Fletchkes ", in the captivating film of the photographer Ofer Yanov (" Beaufort ") ... got together to participate in a show by the choreographer Galit Liss, which deals with aging. They are honestly exposed to the camera, and also move beautifully. To the flattering hit "Young Forever" is absolutely coincidental. " TIME OUT, Yael again

 

"Fletchkes - pure pleasure ... Ofer Yanov directed and shot a delightful fascinating film, and evokes thoughts and questions that are only relevant to the elderly ... Want to order tickets at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque!" Anat Shafran Or - Life According to Literature and Cinema

 

A sensitive, generous and touching film. Funny and full of insights about life and age. 54 minutes at the end of which you can go out on the street and smile ... " Orit Harel - Motke website

 

 

Comments from viewers at the premiere of the Dokaviv Festival

 

"Charming is a little word about the in-depth experience that this film manages to convey through five wonderful women whose youngest is 77. I saw it today at the Cinematheque and touched on levels I have no words to describe ..."

 

"The film goes beyond being so exciting and intimate, raising two unparalleled important social and moral flags. "Useless excess. He does all this without the slightest hint of whining and misery - on the contrary, he shows women very proud of what they are!"
