At The Edge
2 Short Films

The Mute's House
Israel | 2015 | 31 min | Hebrew, Arabic | Tamar Kay

Abandoned by its Palestinian owners, the deserted building in Hebron is named 'the Mute's House" by Israeli soldiers. Its only occupants are a deaf woman, Sahar, and her charismatic eight-year-old son Yousef. Their story forms a touching counterpoint to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Told from the eyes of the Yousef in the heart of a city torn apart by hatred and violence.

Canada | 2016 | 39 min | Japanese | Yung Chang

The Tojinbo Cliffs are a popular Japanese tourist destination known for their rugged beauty. The sheer cliffs are also a favoured location for those wanting to jump to their death. Retired police detective Yukio Shige has patrolled the area for more than a decade, hoping to spot troubled souls before it's too late. Though Shige has saved over 500 people, he's lost others, many of whom have left notes thanking him for his kindness. As tour buses arrive with local sightseers keen to absorb nature's wonder, a darkness hangs over those wishing to make it their final resting place. Award-winning director Yung Chang eloquently observes the picturesque town through one man's thoughtful vigilance. In a country with one of the highest suicide rates in the world, Shige's compassion and generosity have made him a lifeline for those with nothing left to lose.
