Director: Gili Meisler


Mid-Atlantic Premiere

This is a story of two brothers: Giora, the most talked about MIA of the Yom Kippur War, and Gili, the one who has been searching for Giora and himself ever since. As a 12-year-old boy, Gili must deal with his brother’s markedly mysterious disappearance and his parents’ devastation at the loss. Ten years later, Gili embarks on his first journey to the Far East, searching for his brother where Giora once traveled. In 2005 Gili, the sole survivor of the family, embarks on a final journey of loss, love and hope to find the endings he lacks for the stories that began with the disappearance of one Israeli soldier who will remain forever 19.  To see film website click on this link: fireflies.co.il
