Les Films d'ici présente ; un film de Avi Mograbi ; scénario de Avi Mograbi, Noam Enbar ; réalisation, Avi Mograbi
[Paris] : Epicentre Films, [2014]
"This film fantasizes about an 'old' Middle East, wherein communities were not divided along ethnic and religious lines. In the journey taken by filmmaker Avi Mograbi and his Arabic teacher Ali Al-Azhari to their own and each other's communal histories in a time machine born of their friendly encounter, the Middle East of yore - the one in which they could coexist effortlessly - resurfaces with commensurate ease."--Container.
