Red Fields, Keren Yedaya's new film, is a cinematic adaptation of Mami - an Israeli rock opera that became a local cult phenomenon in the 1980’s. Sixteen songs recorded live, with new arrangements by Dudu Tassa and Nir Maimon, tell the unbelievable story of Mami - a young woman from a town in the south who works as a cashier at a gas station. When her husband is injured in the war, her life changes. Mami escapes with wheelchair-bound Nissim to the big city, Tel Aviv. There, she hopes, their luck will shine.
