The documentary “Closed Circuit” deconstructs an extreme event and outlines the intense, complicated Israeli reality in which one moment can turn idle routine into uncontrollable hell.
Two men sit at a popular café in Tel Aviv. Moments later, they open fire on the shocked diners around them. One customer fights back. Others run to safety. No one escapes unharmed. Closed Circuit documents the infamous terrorist attack at Sarona Market with raw footage from security cameras and riveting interviews with survivors: a father breaking the Ramadan fast with his family, a cop who unknowingly saves one of the fleeing terrorists, a girl who escapes but loses her dad, and restaurant workers, both Arab and Jewish, whose lives are forever changed by their sudden encounter with death.
Followed by a Q&A session with the director.
