The Ceremony

A Film by: Avi Weissblei & Eliran Knoller 
(Israel, 2013, 85 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles)

At 80 years of age, Colonel David Rokni is organizing the national ceremony for Israel's Independence Day. As he had done each year for the last 30 years, he goes through the arduous series of formation and foot drills for the traditional military parade as only he can do it. 

A week before the ceremony, disaster strikes unexpectedly. For the first time, Rokni has to cope with an unfamiliar situation during a ceremony that will transform his life.


"Accessible, humorous, human, moving, and thoughtful – very well structured and delivered, and is an engaging and rewarding little film" - IMDb
