OFF WHITE LIES
Dir. Maya Kenig (86 min, Israel/Germany, 2011)
Hebrew with English Subtitles
Narrative

DC Premiere

Libby, an introverted teenager from California, is sent to live with her dad Shaul in Israel. Her arrival coincides with the outbreak of the second Lebanon war. Shaul, an infantile eccentric, is “in-between apartments,” and out of practice as a father. Getting creative to put a roof over their heads, they hatch a scheme to pose as refugees from northern Israel and are taken in by a well-off family in Jerusalem. But their false identities can’t last forever.
