Put these summer-themed picks in your queue and start watching:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
