Luxuries

.
David Ofek / 2011

An elusive “coordinator,” vague formulas that calculate “survival capacity”, warehouses cramped with rotting goods, and donkeys dressed up as zebras – all take part in the mosaic that sketches a surreal reality in which evil and stupidity merge.
Director David Ofek takes the viewer on a journey to the absurd front of the Israeli “blockade on Gaza”, revealing the consequences of a policy that limits the flow of goods into Gaza.

Press

  • "David Ofek's 'Luxuries' turns the Gaza blockade into a Fellini film."
    Pnai Plus review.
    Yair Raveh
  • "With a humorist touch, a film that elegantly portrays the insanity here -- a sort of homage to Felini."
    Ha'aretz Review
    Moran Sharir,
  • "David Ofek is an incredible filmmaker. He has the ability to take what seems a two-dimensional reality and find the small angles that really make the big picture that twists the viewer."
    Globes Review
    Nir Kipnis
