AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER -- 2021 MIAMI JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL


An official selection of the Cannes Film Festival and graced by two fantastic lead performances, Here We Are is a film suffused with the triumphs, the sadness, and the quiet moments of tenderness that make up so much of our lives. Israeli auteur Nir Bergman (MJFF 2018 film Saving Neta) returns with this soulful drama that touches on family ties, the rights of the differently-abled, and the sadness of aging. Uri (Noam Imber from MJFF 2017 film Beyond the Mountains and Hills) is too old to continue living with his father Aharon (Shai Avivi from MJFF 2017 film One Week and a Day and MJFF 2018 film Longing), a stubborn divorcé and Uri’s loving caregiver. Their cocooned, codependent situation is upended when Uri’s mother insists he enter a specialized facility to attain independence. Deeply reluctant to let go, Aharon escapes with Uri on an adventure-filled, often humorous trek. But with time catching up, both men must learn how to say goodbye. Suffused with emotion and graced by deeply felt performances, this life-affirming two-hander was nominated for ten Israeli Academy Awards, with wins for Best Director, Screenplay, Actor, and Supporting Actor.
