The Witch from Melchet Street

Narrative | 2005 | 50 min.
Directed by: Dina Zvi-Riklis

A modern-day urban fairy tale about a 300 year old witch (Rozina Cambos) with a broken heart, and Assaf (Eyal Cohen), a boy who lives in the same apartment block in the heart of 1980's Tel Aviv. Assaf is a dreamer, a lost soul who falls in love for the first time with a new girl from his neighborhood, who barely notices him. Two decades later, when Assaf spots his first love in the street, he flashbacks to the experience of love and heartbreak, and the invaluable life lessons that he and an old witch taught each other about what it means to overcome a broken heart.
