WIPE OUT

A dark comedy about nuclear (and other strangely attractive) threats hanging over an Israeli couple. A bad-news-bearing friend drops in (what are friends for?) and by the time he leaves, Ahmadinejad is dancing, Yoav is doubting, and the ceiling is dripping. When will peace come?

FIRST PLACE

An Indonesian mother, Nanik, works as a maid in Miami while raising her 11-year-old daughter to be a brilliant chess champion. Nanik catalogues hundreds of her daughter’s trophies in their miniature apartment eternally lit by Christmas lights. Parakeets score Nanik’s beaming commentary and hundred-watt smile, breaking only when her thoughts drift from her champion to the other life she left behind, and the other daughter.
