Description Reviews / Awards

Almost thereis the story of a lesbian couple's move away from Israel and the problems they wish to leave behind.

Joelle lived in Tel-Aviv for eleven years but tired of this city wrapped in violence. Sigal, hiding her true sexual identity from her family, needs to distance herself to be able to have a more complete life with her partner. Together they travel through Greece in search of a new home.

The couple tape each other throughout their travels, producing a video diary, each expressing her feelings as she observes the other. Their unfurling journey pushes them to question the very heart of their search; essential dilemmas such as: "Where do I belong?" "What is home?" and "How can we be part of our families when we are different from them?"

Almost There presents a couple that dares: dares to change their life, dares to deal with personal fears, dares to search for happiness...and most of all, dares to make a documentary which carefully explores the beauty and difficulties of intimacy, sexual identity, and the complexity of family relationships--all difficult to examine, unless we turn the camera upon ourselves.
