Promisedland™ / The Paradise Park Will Close on Fridays at Three (2023)

Nominated IDA Awards 2023

In an enormous silver dome, on the edge of an Israeli settlement and in the middle of the Palestinian desert, a new and fantastical Israeli theme park has recently emerged.

The film documents both the astonishing absurdity of this strange construction and the perception distorting, even psychotropic, effects it seems to have on its inhabitants. As the film progresses, we encounter a pervasive sense of delusion, and the tragedy behind a gaudy veneer.
