The House in 8/A | Israel | Documentary | Doron Levene | 11 min | World Premiere

The house in 8/A appears to be a regular house. It has regular rooms, windows and doors. But one door remained locked in the Levene family for years.

Lawrence, the father of the family, is the films' main character. Lawrence is a charming, colorful man with somewhat lyrical language. He's also good with his hands, which comes to show since he constantly finds things to fix in the house. For more than 30 years Lawrence has been, almost obsessively, working on the house. As we see him working, we come to know the other Levene family members as they talk about the wound that time, nor Lawrence, cannot fix. An intimate look at a house, a family and the memories that constantly shape our lives.
