Screening of docu-film by the NTU Sociological Society – Seeds of Summer

“My Mom always says that my military service is to blame for everything that has happened to her little girl.  During my military service, I was assigned to a course for female combat unit officers, one of the most militant roles available to women in the Israeli army. It was there that I first fell in love with a woman – my commanding officer. ” – Hen Lasker, Director. Seeds of Summer

The film moves between the external (the course) and the personal and, accordingly, it shifts between day and night. During the day the girls act as “men”. This is a central theme in the film, filled with drama, reflecting the military mechanism that produces, like a well tuned machine, another 40 female combat officers. Yet at night, in the dark, after the day’s trials and harassments are over, that is the time when the girls are as feminine as can be and  an intense female environment is exposed.
