Israeli art therapy

In 1985 actor Amir Orian left a successful career in theater and film to create his own experimental theater. Since then, his so-called "Room Theater" has launched the career of several prominent Israeli actors and in MIXED FEELINGS we follow a new batch of students as they familiarize themselves with Orian's method. During the filming of the documentary, Israel launches a major airstrike in Gaza, but as the actors’ polarized views on the Arab-Israeli conflict threaten to tear the group apart, their teacher gradually convinces them to work their disagreements into their art.
