Open Your Eyes

Pikhi Einaieh

ALT | International Shorts

Ilana is going blind. When she goes to the clinic with her son for her monthly injections, she is terrified to learn her usual doctor is absent. Open Your Eyes is both an over-the-top comedy and a tense drama about facing your fears: fear for one’s safety, fear of the other, ingrained fear. Top-notch performances highlight this film set in Jerusalem, where fear can exist in many forms. How can one judge a person who has a real fear for their life, no matter how out of context or melodramatic this may be? Can one overcome such fear? With a great deal of love and patience from her son, and an understanding Arab doctor, perhaps there is hope, even for Ilana.
