Cinemanita: American Hippie in Israel AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL 1972
Ha-Trempist ( הטרמפיסט)
Directed by Amos Sefer
95 minutes
In English

This is one of the old "so-bad-it's good" films that have been recently unearthed for re-evaluation. Films like this were barely shown when they were made, and quickly disappeared from human memory. But now, years later, these gems have a tarnished charm that make them among the most cherished of cult films. This film is an underground phenomenon, and one of the favorites at the The Rocky Horror-like screenings where the audience is part of the experience.

An American Hippie in Israel centers on an American Vietnam Vet who is disillusioned after coming back from the war, and goes on a journey in search of kicks and unlimited freedom. He finds himself in a world of weed, free-loving, debauchery and an unexpected climax.

The director Amos Sefer made only this one film in his entire lifetime, partly because he was unfortunate enough to make this film in a time when Israel wasn't particularly popular nor marketable. It's been described as a mix between an Ed Wood film and Antonioni's Zabriskie Point. "A long lost psychedelic classic".

This will be a high-definition screening.
