The Other City


For 12 years, Livi, a photography student, documents her four closest friends - young artists in downtown Haifa, far from the Tel Aviv art scene. The intimate, loving maturation documentary follows their journey to fulfill their dreams, while struggling with a reality of economic difficulties, manic depression, and alcoholism. Over the years, the instability of their lives raises questions about success, self-destruction, and the price of their aspirations.
