TAU Student Film “Kinship” to Compete at Cannes

Written on |

Steve Tisch School to grace the red carpet for the 17th time.

We are excited to share that the film “Kinship” by TAU student Orin Kadouri will be screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival on May 26, as part of the La Cinéf competition. The competition was established within the Cannes Film Festival in 1998 and aims to discover the next generation of leading filmmakers. The film will have its local premiere and compete at the International Student Film Festival taking place in Tel Aviv on June 12-18.

Orin Kadouri, 26, is a third-year student at The Steve Tisch School of Film and Television, The David and Yolanda Katz Faculty of the Arts. In the film, Kadouri’s first, a young girl explores new boundaries in her relationship with her widowed father following the entry of a new woman into his life. Spoiler: The daughter will do everything in her power to become the center of her father’s life again. The film was supervised by journalist and director Dalia Karpel and Head of the Tisch School, Prof. Yaron Bloch.

Red Carpet Return 

This is the 17th time that the School has been accepted to the official Cannes Student Competition. “Im Hukim” (With Rules), by director Dover Koshvili, was the first film to be accepted to the competition (in 1999), earning second place. In 2002, Aya Somekh won another second place with her film “Questions of a Dead Worker”, and in 2005 the director Mia Dreyfus won yet another second place with her film “Visiting Hours.” Other young TAU directors who have walked the red carpet over the years include: Hadar Morag, Haim Tabakman, Amit Skomsky, Yaniv Berman, Maayan Rif, Yuval Shani and others.

Eti Tsicko, Industry Relations Responsible of The Steve Tisch School says, “Although this is the 17th time the School is competing at Cannes, we’re still very excited for and with Orin and her thought-provoking film and wish her good luck!”
