In an effort to make a change from his
mundane lifestyle, Alain, a successful doctor,
decides to embrace his Jewish heritage
and move to Tel Aviv. "Hello Goodbye" is
a comedic account of the struggles Alain
and his wife, Gisele, encounter while starting
their new life. This film is full of mishaps -
lost baggage, an apartment that doesn't

"La Camara Oscura" tells the story of
Gertrudis, a Jewish immigrant born on
the docks when her parents' ship arrived
in Buenos Aires at the beginning of the
20th century.
Labeled ugly by her jealous younger
brother, Gertrudis tends to blend into the
background, especially when photographs
are taken. Gertrudis is married off to
an older, wealthy Jewish rancher, and
she appears to have a happy life, raising
a loving family. One day, however, her
husband hires an itinerant photographer
to take pictures of the ranch, and Gertrudis
is strangely drawn to this handsome, yet
physically imperfect man.
