Save with a LIFF 2022 Pass

The Cakemaker was an audience favourite at LIFF 2017 and writer/director Ofir Raul Graizer’s new film America is a sensual and vibrant melodrama and an affectionate tribute to 60s and 70s cinema. Eli works as a swimming coach in Chicago but he returns to his native Israel after news of his father’s death. Eli seems to have put the past behind him but he decides to contact Yotam, a childhood friend, who now runs a flower shop with his fiancée Iris. Reigniting an old friendship sets in motion a series of events that have a lasting impact on the lives of everyone involved.
