Cannes sings local Jerusalemite's 'Anthem'by harry • May 25 2008
Elad Keidan, a student at Jerusalem's Sam Spiegel Film and Television School, beat out 16 other student films and was awarded first prize in CinΓ©fondation-Short Film Jury at 61st Cannes Film Festival in France on Friday.
Keidan's short film, Himnon (Anthem) runs 36 minutes and follows the adventures of a young man Amnon who ventures through the droll Jerusalem neighborhood of Katamonim on a Friday afternoon to buy milk and in the span of a few hours meets a slew of characters and through these interactions his life changes dramatically. In an interview with Israeli daily Haaretz, Keidan calls it the "Israeli Big Lewbowski."
Jerusalemite can only surmise that the Dude-like lead needs milk so he can keep up his habit of rapidly consuming White Morroccans, a cocktail made from milk and arak.
