Director Asaf Saban’s impressive and sensitive first film dives right into the deep end—taking on an Ingmar Bergman-worthy tale of a couple whose fraying relationship is set against the construction of their dream home.
Tel Aviv inhabitants Gili and Yaara decide to leave the city for a fresh start in the countryside of the Galilee. As house construction progresses around them, family, professional, and money troubles gnaw at their union’s very foundations. Equal parts grounded realism and poignant allegory, Outdoors is an unmistakable accomplishment and a most auspicious debut.
- Winner of Best Screenplay
2017, Haifa Jewish Film Festival
- A thoughtful [...] relationship drama, Outdoors benefits from an incisive grasp of its two lead characters’ inner lives and an acute sensitivity for their many sources of angst [...] The film eschews simple marital melodrama for a more wide-ranging generational portrait ― Screendaily
