My Own Daughter

Directed by: Mooly Landesman
50 Minutes, 1998

Sivan, a 22 year old kibbutznik struggles with memories of her father who sexually abused her. The present intermingles with the story of the past: the institutions which lacked the sensitivity to deal with her trauma, the silence and impenetrability of the kibbutz, the indifference of the police and the legal system and the family that doesn’t know how to cope. After seeking professional help, Sivan decides to sue her father and take a stand against him for the first time.
