When the Smoke Clears

Directed by Rebecca Shore

Israel-USA | 90 minutes | 2017

Hebrew with English subtitles

From the creators of Beneath the Helmet (MJFF 2015) and Israel Inside, When the Smoke Clears shares the inspiring accounts of young Israeli soldiers who experience the unthinkable in battle and must contend with life-altering scars. Returning to society, they realize that their experiences and trauma disconnect them from what they once valued, turning their lives upside down. When all seems lost, one young veteran gives them the hope, courage, tools, and community to survive and embrace their identities as heroes, both on and off the battlefield. Banding together as a family of wounded soldiers, they learn they don’t have to face their obstacles alone, and that in conquering their pain they might have more to offer than ever before. When the Smoke Clears follows this band of brothers during the darkest times of their lives and proves that growth and healing can come through giving to others, transforming us into heroes in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.

Producers Rafael Shore & Matt Weisbaum will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in an extended conversation with the audience afterward.
