Exclusive new clip: Here We Are starring Noam Imber and Shai Avivi
We have an exclusive clip from the award-winning Here We Are, which will be released in UK cinemas on Friday 23rd July.
Taking inspiration from writer Dana Idisis’s own family, the film is a touching story of a father and his relationship with his grown-up autistic son, played by Shai Avivi and Noam Imber. Aharon (Avivi) has devoted his life to raising his son Uri (Imber), and they live together in a gentle routine away from the real world. The latter is autistic and now, as a young adult, it might be time for him to live in a specialised home. Aharon feels deep down that his son is not ready for this separation, so on the way to the residence, he decides to run away with Uri and they hit the road. The journey upon which they embark has unexpected consequences on the pair’s quiet life together.
The film was part of the Cannes Film Festival 2020 in Official Selection and was nominated for 10 Ophir Awards in Israel, winning in the categories of Best Director, Best Actor (Shai Avivi), Best Supporting Actor (Noam Imber) and Best Screenplay.
