Mograbi, which received the Michael

Moore Award for Best Documentary
at the 2001 Ann Arbor Film Festival.
"August questions not so much
whose political side we're on, but takes
it down to the street level of individual
people having to live their lives on a
daily basis with this turbulence around
them," says Hamilton.
"Some of the incidents Mograbi cap-
tures are just mind-boggling. We all know
about this great conflict, but we don't live
it every day. We don't have to walk to the
grocery store in that environment.
Shot in August of 2000 just before
the current intifada reached critical
mass, August is half documentary and
half fiction. Mograbi appears as himself,
a real-life filmmaker interviewing people
on the street who fear his camera. -
But he also takes on roles as
Mograbi the fictional director, his own
wife (with a towel wrapped around his
head) and a producer working with
the real Mograbi on a.film about the
1994 Hebron massacre.
Mograbi's intent was to document
the month of August as a metaphor
for the violent climate in Israel, but as
he shot the film, he discovered that
the violence he imagined was harder
to find than he had originally thought.
He did, however, find people con-

frontational toward him and his cam-
era, and in this way his original idea
was carried out in a manner different
from what he had first planned but
successful all the same.

Hamilton says the festival makes films
that deal with topical issues in unique
ways a priority
"We're definitely about what's hap-
pening in the present moment. The fes-
tival has always had a history of being
political, of showing political work."
Schogt, while not necessarily work-
ing with current events, does deal with
political issues. Her personal trilogy of
16mm Holocaust shorts — Zyklon
Portrait, The Walnut Tree and Silent
Song— deal with the relationship
between subjective memory and objec-
tive history as well as her own family's
history, and will be screened in a spe-
cial juror's presentation.
A resident of Canada, Schogt has won
numerous awards at home and abroad.
All three of her films have received
awards at the Ann Arbor festival.
"Elida's films are really beautiful and
gripping and very much a different
way of looking at the Holocaust," says

and claymation movies, as well as a
youth film competition that
receives entries from elementary,
middle and high schoolers.
This year the ELCFF will show a
retrospective of films from Weston
Woods Studios, which made film
adaptations of such children's books as
Make Way for Ducklings and Where the
Wild Things Are, and will premiere the
new Teacher from the Black Lagoon.
The ELCFF also will run Today
You Are a Fountain Pen, a short film
by Dan Katzir. Katzir's film tells the
story of the relationship between a
boy and his grandfather, who grew
up during the Holocaust, as the
boy's bar mitzvah draws near.
