Mostar Round-Trip

 
In MOSTAR ROUND TRIP folgt David Fisher seinem Sohn Yuval, der ein Jahr zuvor nach Mostar in Bosnien-Herzegowina zog, um dort das United World College zu besuchen. Insgesamt dreimal reist der Vater zu seinem Sohn und dokumentiert dabei nicht nur deren Beziehung zueinander, sondern auch das Verhältnis seines Sohnes zu dessen israelischen Freunden, zu seiner spanischen Freundin Neus und vor allem zu seinem Mitbewohner Salam, einem arabischen Israeli. Der Film zeigt nicht nur das Erwachsenwerden Yuvals und die damit verbundenen Konflikte zum Vater, sondern auch die stetig wachsende Toleranz zwischen Jugendlichen unterschiedlichster Herkunft.

One year after 17-year-old Yuval leaves his home in Israel to attend UWC international high-school situated in Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina, filmmaker David Fisher, his father, follows. During three round-trips to Mostar, Yuval’s relationships unfold: with his father, his Israeli peers and his Spanish girlfriend, Neus. Although Yuval is far from home, this actually brings father and son closer together. Yuval and his roommate Salam, an Israeli Arab, have passionate political debates. Far from home these youngsters learn to open up to other cultures, and this changes their perception of their not-so-beloved neighbors.
