Two men sit in a restaurant in Tel Aviv, Israel. A few minutes later, they open fire on those present. One of them fights back, others run away, a parent tries to pull the child while the staff tries to escape. There is a terrorist attack in Sarona market. The documentary "Closed Circle" was shown at the International Film Festival for Human Rights in Marubi, director Tal Inbar shows the process.
"The incident happened a few meters from my house, but I moved to the area only a year later. When I saw the security cameras, I thought I could do something about the incident. I then found survivors and interviewed them. The most difficult character was the policeman, because he didn't want to come out, so we staged him after we got his confession. Many people have helped us and there was a lot of interest in the film when it was released", said the director.
Built with interviews and security camera footage, survivors of the attack recount the terrifying moments, while the film brings to light the case of an Israeli policeman who unknowingly saw one of the fleeing terrorists. The film meets Arabs and Jews in a restaurant as their lives change forever.
