IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND (IN DEINER HAND)

IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2020

After such acclaimed shorts as BEASTS and SOLO, Israeli-born writer-director Rebeca Ofek is working on the debut feature IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND which will be her graduation film from the Berlin-based DFFB.

Ofek's screenplay centers on the emotionally inhibited 13-year-old Jessy who can hardly remember what her life was like when her father was around. Jessy only allows her mother to get close to her and the two cling on to each other. The symbiotic relationship is jeopardized when Jessy’s father is given an early release from prison.

The coming-of-age drama is the latest DFFB film to be supported by the Leuchtstoff initiative which was launched by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and broadcaster RBB in 2012.
