The Boy
Israel, 2023
25 Minutes
Hebrew with English Subtitles

A special FREE screening of The Boy to honor the memories of those who lost their lives since October 7, 2023 and those who survived.

On Saturday, October 7, Hamas terrorists burst into filmmaker Yahav Winner's family bedroom in Kibbutz Kfar Aza in the south of Israel. Yahav tried with all his strength to block the terrorists, allowing his wife, Shaylee, and their one-month-old daughter, Shaya, to escape. Shortly afterward, Yahav was murdered in cold blood. Shaylee defended baby Shaya, with no food or water, for 27 hours until they were rescued.

In Yahav Winner's The Boy, Avinoam and Barak, father and son from a kibbutz near the Gaza strip, are each facing another round of combat in their own way. While Avinoam insists on continuing his routine and his work in the field, Barak finds it difficult to close his eyes and continue as usual. One night, Barak reaches a boiling point and Avinoam is forced to absorb the flames.
