Put these summer-themed picks in your queue and start watching:
- Midsummer Madness: A quirky romantic comedy set in Latvia, the former Soviet republic, on the shortest night of the year. The whole country is going crazy on midsummer night when Curt, a young American, arrives in Riga, and the festivities are about to start. This is a classic slapstick comedy of errors.
- Seeds of Summer: Seven years after completing an IDF course for female combat soldiers, the director returns to the place where she fell in love with a woman – her commanding officer. Over the course of 66 days and nights, the film follows the transformation of 18-year-old girls into fierce disciplined soldiers. Through the intimate relationship that develops between the director and one of the characters, questions about identity, sexuality and the discovery of femininity surface.
- Never Ending Thermal: A documentary that celebrates the paragliding lifestyle around the world. Two top acro-pilots travel to spectacular aerial locations — from Angel Falls in Venezuela to the Himalayas, the Dolomites in Italy to the Zagora Basin in Morocco, all in search of the perfect thermal.
