The Island

Adam Weingrod


The Island


Un’intima occhiata all’interno del ricco mosaico umano dell’ospedale francese St. Louis, uno ospizio per malati terminali, situato sul confine di tensione tra la Gerusalemme dell’Est e quella dell’Ovest, davanti alle mura della Città Antica. Per due anni il regista ha seguito pazienti e assistenti sanitari – ognuno con la propria storia. Nel film si alternano, tra le mura dell’ospedale, momenti di umorismo e tristezza della vita.

Biofilmografia del regista

Adam was born in the late 1980s to a family of artists in Jerusalem, Israel.

In 2016, Adam obtained his M.F.A. in film, graduating with Honors from Tel Aviv University.

Also in 2016, Adam received First Prize for Development from the CoPro Israeli Documentary Marketing Foundation for his film "The Island," which was supported later on by the main Israeli TV channel yes Docu, and premiered at the DocAviv Film Festival in 2017. Currently Adam is working on two new Documentary films. “Song of the Sampaguita”- The story of a seven year old girl who fled Natzi Germany to the only place that took her in, the Philippine Islands.
