Interview with Idan Hubel, director and screenwriter of the movie Ten Months, interviewer Milani Perera
"Hubel graduated with honors from the Film and Television School in Jerusalem. He is very fond of neorealist aesthetics. His films and TV series explore the injustices of today's world through the eyes of marginalized groups of people. His previous films have participated in several film festivals and he is currently working on his third feature film.
Ten Months is about a woman named Merav. Who, after years of failed attempts, finally manages to get pregnant. But it also comes with unexpected news. Merav needs the support of her family to carry her pregnancy to term. However, the family does not accept the pregnancy and tries to terminate it in all possible ways.
The film has a spiritual style and theme. The complexity of motherhood from a psychological perspective is described. Carefully selected close-ups and simplistic shots with shallow depth of field create an engaging visual language, carrying Hubel's voice into every corner.
The female characters were inspired by the women of Hubel's own life. He says: ""My mother is my alter-ego, in a way.""
