Danny Lerner's new film Kirot will have its world premiere in the City to City section of the Toronto International Film Festival next month. This is the first year the City to City program is being held; it will feature 10 films focusing on the cinema of Tel Aviv in honor of the city's 100th anniversary. The program is meant to explore the evolving urban experience through documentary and fiction films from a particular city.
Kirot (Walls) stars Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and singer Ninet Tayeb as two women living across the hall from each other in an old apartment building in Tel Aviv. One is an assassin involved in the sex-traffic mafia who just wants to be reunited with her young daughter; the other is a cashier and battered wife who wants to win the lottery. The two get together to escape their unhappy lives.
The film will be released in Israel later this year.
