The Queen Has No Crown
directed by Tomer Heymann
Using intimate Super 8 and 16mm home footage of his family spanning 20 years, Tomer Heymann (PAPER DOLLS, SLGFF 2006) documents its slow dissolution. One by one, three of his four brothers leave Israel for life in America, shattering their mother’s idealistic dreams while fulfilling their own more practical ones. Only two bachelor sons remain: one straight and one gay. Framed against the backdrop of Israel’s various ethnic and religious conflicts, the hard decisions facing the Heymann family mirror a clash of politics, sexuality, and self-fulfillment with duty, guilt, and the desire to belong.
