Israeli Drama ‘All Eyes Off Me’ Due on DVD and Digital March 14 From Film Movement

The Israeli drama All Eyes Off Me, in which a trio of young Israelis explore intimacy and the boundaries of their sexuality, will be released on digital and DVD March 14 from Film Movement.

In the film (released in Hebrew with English subtitles), in Tel Aviv at a party, an anxious girl named Danny is looking for Max, a recent casual fling, to share that she’s pregnant with his child. Through the haze of drugs and promiscuity of the partygoers, Danny doesn’t get far in her search. Meanwhile, Max is busy with his new girlfriend Avishag. He attempts to realize her rough sexual fantasies, but Avishag instead turns her attention to another burgeoning relationship with Dror, an older man for whom she dog-sits.

In these three, loosely connected vignettes, director Hadas Ben Aroya’s second feature film proves to be an atmospheric exploration of a self-possessed generation of young Israelis. All Eyes Off Me, winner of several awards at the 2021 Jerusalem Film Festival including Best Israeli Feature, addresses the physical limits of intimacy, questioning just how liberated these youths really are. The film was also an Official Selection at the Berlinale and Karlovy Vary International Film Festivals.

The DVD includes the bonus 10-minute short film “Daddy’s Girl,” winner of the Film Movement Award at the 2022 San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. Directed by Lena Hudson, it follows an oddball father and daughter who get up to some hilariously irreverent antics when he helps her move out of her wealthy, older boyfriend’s apartment.
