2016 Houston Jewish Film Festival: 10% My Child
Nico, a 26-year-old would-be filmmaker, awakens one morning in his girlfriend’s bed to discover her 7-year-old daughter Franny staring at him from the bedroom’s doorway. He jumps out of bed and out of the window, half dressed.
So begins a love/hate relationship between the two as Nico becomes Franny’s sometime babysitter and attempts to find common ground with her in order to have a better chance with her mom. Winner of the Best Independent Film Award at the Ophirs, this sweet film is Uri Bar-on’s directorial debut.
Directed by Uri Bar-on, Israel, 2014, 84 min. Hebrew with English subtitles. Houston Premiere. Comedy.
