When dark secrets threaten to destroy her closest relationships, teacher Hadas is drawn into a complex and deeply personal search for the truth in this gripping psychological drama from Keren Margalit, award-winning creator of The A Word.
Working at a school for “high risk” pupils, every day Hadas fights in her own special way for her students, treading carefully through each’s own unique universe. But her world is turned upside down when she receives an envelope containing sections torn out of her psychologist Ya’akov Eshel’s diary – papers documenting their private conversations. And, on the same night, Ya’akov is unexpectedly killed in a car accident, cutting off any chance for Hadas to discover how the diary came to be in a stranger’s hands.
In a desperate search to track down the anonymous sender, Hadas will be forced to deal with the truths she has concealed from those closest to her – and from herself. As her 40th birthday approaches, Hadas is stuck in a less than passionate marriage and also suffers from an ever-growing fear of impending death. The investigation will impact every aspect of her life, shaking her relationships with her husband, her boss and her best friend, as well as the bonds she has strived to build with her students.
Sleeping Bears blends a captivating thriller with a moving drama focusing on our ability to trust those we are closest to, as Hadas questions the fundamental elements of every human connection – love, trust and, ultimately, truth.

The Department of Special Objects
A comic children’s series documenting one of the most highly confidential places of employment in Israel – the department of special objects, an archive where all the great and important historical objects of the state are kept. A new historical object arrives at the department in each episode, which the department employees have to prepare for exhibition. The department staff is made up of an ensemble of characters, all with a wide giving heart, but all lacking in terms of clarity and logic.
A comic narrative stands at the center of each episode, and the series in effect presents a fun and original way to learn about many central aspects of Israeli history.
A comic series telling the tale of a failing supermarket in a backwards town and following the daily events that take place within the supermarket.
The series goes into the details of everything we don’t know about the behind the scenes occurrences in the supermarket – the relationships between the employees forced to work in a place they feel no loyalty for, the customers with their baseless and petty demands, the management’s abusive attitude towards the employees, and the private lives of the workers at the bottom of the employment hierarchy.

Three consecutive stories, The Substitute, The Virgin and The Commander, recount the events of an administration office at a remote army base in the Israeli desert. The stories compose a military epic of power-struggles, intrigues and a friendship on trial.
But unlike the traditional war genre films, Zero Motivation brings to center-stage the military’s female clerical staff. The film depicts the three soldiers’ real – and surreal, comical – and gloomy journey inside the maze of military bureaucracy. For a staple-gun in the first act is sure to go off in the third.
