Tamara Mamon | Israel 2019 | 58 Min. | OmeU

The patience of Ella, a Jewish music teacher who emigrated from the former Soviet Union to Lod in Israel, is remarkable. The prepubescent behavior of her pupils Omar, Muhammad, and Yazan can be infuriating. Yet, in their last year of elementary school, the three friends have to deal with many struggles as they transition into a new stage of life: Omar deals with his father’s illness, Yazan has to overcome his violent behavior, and Muhammad is about to leave Lod and his beloved friends.

OUT LOUD portrays the conflict-ridden everyday lives of three Arab-Israeli boys whose lives threaten to slip away with every step they take, while Ella tries to prepare them for a singing performance at school.
