29 Rupin St.

Directed by: Jonathan Hepner
7 Minutes, 2009, Drama; Fiction

Uri, an easy-going handsome 50 year-old man, left the kibutz 20 years ago and moved to Tel Aviv, but still insists to live his life in his apartment building as if it was a sharing community. His small garden in the entrance of the building is perfectly groomed, and his relationship with the neighbors is warm. Menachem, a lawyer who owns a few apartments in the building, yearns for years to destroy the garden and make it into a parking space. Today is “Tu Be Shvat” (an Israeli holiday which celebrates agriculture), and Uri succeeds in spreading a little holiday spirit amongst the neighbors.
