Festival Section: Quinzaine des Realisateurs – Director’s Fortnight.
AT LI LAYLA tells the tale of a complex relationship between two sisters, ‘Chelli’ and ‘Gabby’, a mentally disabled girl who is cared for by her sister. But things take an interesting turn when Chelli’ finds a love interest and the intensity of the feelings she has for her sister increases dramatically to an almost claustrophobic level.
FRED caught up with husband/wife duo Director Asaf Korman and writer/lead actress Liron Ben-Shlush, who explains the very personal inspiration for this story and playing the lead role in the film.
