An aged film director is trying to make a new film. She struggles to find the support to get her project of the ground. This director is Michal Bat-Adam — the first female film director in Israel- who dared to try, and ultimately succeeded to break into the closed militaristic, chauvinist film industry in Israel during the 1970s.
Hope I’m in the Frame follows Bat-Adam’s shooting of her new low-budget film and intimately documents her and her husband, the Oscar winning film director Moshe Mizrahi, sharing the struggle to make films despite the establishment’s rejection.
The film, raises questions about art, aging, love, partnership and compassion.
