Samuel Maoz's movie Lebanon won best film at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday evening. Set in the First Lebanon War, Maoz's film is about four soldiers dispatched to a hostile town, which turns out to be a far more dangerous assignment than they anticipated. Itay Turan and Oshri Cohen, who were in Beaufort, another drama set in Lebanon, star, along with Moni Moshonov.
