In 2015, the JBFC awarded Greenhouse 2012 program graduate Sarra Abidi from Tunisia, a one-month residency to edit her project 'The Dead Can't Vote', which was developed through Greenhouse. Past graduate, Yael Reuveny from Israel, was also invited for a one-week residency with her film 'Farewell Herr Schwarz' and held a Q&A session with Steve Apkon, JBFC's founder, and Sigal Yehuda, Greenhouse Director.
The Dead Can't Vote Sarra Abidi / Tunisia, 2012
Away from the revolutionary euphoria, the director returns to her hometown Gabes, both big city and symbol of the richness of the Tunisian South, to shoot fledgling democracy facing the problem of chemical pollution.
Farewell Herr Schwarz Yael Reuveny / Israel, 2013
Perhaps it's true that things can change in a day. That the outcome of a decision made by a brother and sister in 1945 can affect the course of whole lives, for decades to come. Farewell, Herr Schwarz (2013) is an epic documentary about stories that can be inherited like the color of your eyes. A personal journey between Israel and Germany: 1 missed-meeting, 2 families, 3 generations.
