Hailed as one of Israel's most important films, Assi Dayan's 1992 film centers on a Tel Aviv pub and its multicultural clientele. Owned by a middle age woman and representing a complex portrait of Israel, the pub hosts men and women, Jews and Arabs, and a mix of Jewish ethnicities. One night a squad of soldiers is kicked out of the establishment for hassling a waitress. But the consequences of that act are greater than anyone could have imagined. Screened in Hebrew with English subtitles, Dayan's film won the Ophir Award for best film and stars legendary actress Gila Almagor. Learn More
More about the restoration:
The restoration of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent films has been the biggest and most complex restoration project undertaken by the BFI National Archive to date. Decades of damage and wear have been removed; the sharpness of the images improved; new shots discovered and intertitles and tinting restored. The BFI has used elements borrowed from seven international archives in the restoration process, but film materials from the BFI National Archive–including a number of original negatives–have been central to the project. Hitchcock’s silent films are essential to an understanding of his later work and these restorations now enable them to be seen afresh and discovered by new audiences across the world.

He has recorded music for DVD releases, BBC TV screenings and museum installations of silent films. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates flute, accordion and keyboards into his performances, sometimes simultaneously. For more information, visit stephenhorne.co.uk.
