“Laila Ahat Beyafa” at the Student Film Festival in Munich

Raz Ben David accompanied her film “Laila Ahat Beyafa” to the Student Film Festival in Munich. She tells of four days of cinema and surprising encounters, returning tired but pleased.

About the film:

Night in Jaffa. Boys are sitting with a hookah, hipsters going around the marketplace, and one girl Laila who wants to go out. But Laila has a ‘small” problem with her femininity, she wasn’t born a “woman”. Laila won’t let that stand in her way, so she goes out to a pub and flirts with Or, a young good-looking boy. And the night goes on.
