OneVoice Israel recently completed production on 2 films for OV's Imagine 2018 project.
Thanks to the help of Directors Rani Blair and Eran Riklis, some of the best actors in Israel were recruited to be part of the short films, including Yona Elian, Aki Avni, Clara Khoury, Oshri Cohen, Ali Nassaer, and Abdallah Akkal.
On Sunday 24 June, OVI and its production team filmed "Tel Aviv-Damascus Express," under the direction of Rani Blair. The story is about two young people, an Israeli and a Palestinian, who are traveling together on a train from Tel Aviv to Damascus for the first time.
The following day, under the direction of Eran Riklis, OVI filmed "A Soldier and a Boy." Abdallah Akkal, who played the boy, and Aki Avni, who played the soldier, both brought their real families for one of the scenes of the film, in which an Israeli soldier and a Palestinian boy meet at a picnic.
The two children who wrote the original stories on which the films were based were invited, and were amazed to see their ideas come to life. All the actors and directors involved in the filming agreed to join OneVoice, together with OneVoice's international Entertainment Council.
