Hora 79

Directed by: Eli Cohen
92 Minutes, 2013, Drama; Comedy

A comedy about dance and growing older. Thirty five years ago, Israel’s mythological folk dance troupe “Hora 79” ceased its activity following a traumatic event, and the dancers went their separate ways. Now, after several decades, the Carmiel Dance Festival initiates a one-time event: a tribute to the legendary dance troupe. Upon receiving this surprising invitation, the troupe decides to reunite. Will they succeed in overcoming the dark shadows of the past, the old rivalries and conflicts, and the betrayals of an aging body? Will they enjoy a moment of grace, returning, if only for a moment, to their lost youth?
