My Uncle Mario

My Uncle Mario explores the relationship between 17yo Sefi and his gay uncle who drops in unexpectedly. Sefi wants to go visit Mario instead of staying at home, doing deliveries for his mother's home-based restaurant. All three principal actors do an exquisite job of capturing the emotional subtleties of the story. Highly recommended.

MY UNCLE MARIO, dir. Na'ama Zalzman, 2003 Israel, 18 min 16mm, distributor: Sam Spiegel Film & Television School (where I hope you have better luck than I did in finding the English pages!)
