Crew
Directed by Ari Folman and Ori Sivan


One of the most popular Israeli films of the 1990’s, Saint Clara presents a
jumpy, highly energetic, lively, off-kilter Israel where love and the
apocalypse seem interconnected. Beautiful Lucy Dubinchik stars as Clara, a
Russian immigrant teenager whose clairvoyant powers create mayhem among the
students at Golda Meir Junior High School. When the entire seventh grade
class gets perfect scores on a math exam, the faculty is thrown into a
crisis. Determined to stamp out this challenge to their authority, the
teachers trace the source to Clara. Soon, Clara’s powers disrupt the whole
town as she picks winning lottery numbers and predicts an earthquake.
Clara’s powers may not last, however... she will lose them the first time
she falls in love. Hardly your typical teenage comedy, Saint Clara, directed
by Ari Folman and Ori Sivan, from a novel by Czech dissident Pavel Kohout,
has been called a cross between David Lynch and John Hughes. It is a rich
example of the original talent thriving in Israeli cinema.One of the most
popular Israeli films of the 1990’s, Saint Clara presents a jumpy, highly
energetic, lively, off-kilter Israel where love and the apocalypse seem
interconnected.
