A Mirror for the Sun

Directed by Neta Ariel

  • Israel 2018; 60 min

Tamar Ariel grew up in a religious home in a moshav in southern Israel. Encouraged to follow her dreams, she did a two years voluntary National Service and then joined the IDF air force, where she served as the first-ever Jewish Orthodox combat navigator.

In 2014, wishing for new experiences after her military service, she traveled to Nepal. She reached the peak of the Annapurna mountain range with a group of Israeli and international hikers, only to encounter an unexpected snow storm. Tamar and her companions found themselves in a life and death struggle against the elements.
