The Garden of Eden

“The Garden of Eden” is the story of Gan HaShlosha, better known as the “Sakhne”, one of the largest, most famous and most visited parks in Israel.

Director Ran Tal expresses with exceptional cinematic measures the abundance of conflicted elements of the Israeli soul. With vast humor, beauty and pain, the film provides its viewers an original and piercing look at Israeli society, in a least expected location.
