Sundance Festival recognizes 2 Israeli filmmakers


Israeli filmmakers Erez Kav-El and Talya Lavie received awards at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

Kav-El won the world cinema dramatic screenwriting award for his film “Restoration,” about a man coming to terms with his estranged son as his antique furniture-restoration shop suffers financial problems.

Lavie received an Inaugural Sundance Institute Mahindra Global Filmmaking Award, which supports emerging independent filmmakers from around the world, for her film “Zero Motivation.” The film looks at three women working in an administrative office at a remote Israeli army base and their power struggles.

The festival for independent films ended Jan. 30.
