"There are other movies being made about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but they tend to focus on political issues," says Meg Hamel, director of the Wisconsin Film Festival.
One of the films slated in its programming this year -- Karov La Bayit, or Close to Home -- looks at the issue by following the daily lives of two dissimilar women serving in the Israeli military.
"This film is fascinating because it explores what it means to do compulsory military service in the midst of the conflict," Hamel continues. "It examines some interesting relationships between people who are required to work together, even though their personalities don't make them a good fit."
Directed by Vidi Bilu and Dalia Hagar, this Hebrew-language film was originally release in 2005, and has since screenings worldwide at the Berlin Film Festival, the Tribeca Film Festival, the Los Angeles Film Festival and the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.
Close to Home is tentatively scheduled for screening on the second day of this year's festival. A trailer for the film follows below.
