Here We Are

About The Film

Israeli auteur Nir Bergman returns with this tender drama about a protective father’s road trip with his autistic son and the anguish of separation. Uri (Noam Imber) is too old to continue living with his father Aharon (Shai Avivi), a stubborn divorcé and Uri’s loving caregiver. Their cocooned, codependent situation is upended when Uri’s mother insists he enter a specialized facility to attain independence. Deeply reluctant to let go, Aharon escapes with Uri on an adventure-filled, often humorous trek. But with time catching up, both men must learn how to say goodbye. Suffused with emotion and graced by deeply felt performances, this life-affirming two-hander was nominated for nine Israeli Academy Awards, with wins for Best Director, Screenplay, Actor and Supporting Actor.
