"Beaufort" Director Starts New Film Three Years Later

Beaufort writer-director Joseph Cedar starting shooting his new film in Jerusalem yesterday, approximately three years after Beaufort made its international debut at the Berlin Film Festival.

He’arat Shulayim (Footnote) stars Shlomo Bar-Aba and Lior Ashkenazi as a father and son, both professors and Talmud scholars, competing for the Israel Prize (which Cedar’s professor father has won in biology). The film also marks Bar-Aba’s return to film after more than 20 years.

Cedar, who wrote the screenplays for his previous films (including Hahesder in 2000 and Madurat Hashevet in 2004), was nominated for an Oscar in the foreign-language category in 2008. He was also awarded the Golden Bear for best director at the Berlin International Film Festival.

The film has a production budget of NIS 6.8 million and is scheduled for 30 shooting days in Jerusalem, according to Haaretz.
