Adam Sanderson began making films at the age of nine, using a video camera bought by his father. The success of a music video he directed for a Hip Hop group led to a career directing music videos, promos and ads. He established The Baboon Project, a group of five independent filmmakers, where he directed several shorts and he co-directed the feature film This is Sodom, a huge box-office hit in Israel.
Sanderson’s second full-length feature film, Funeral at Noon is an atmospheric drama with beautiful cinematography while dealing with the feeling of alienation and loss. Beautiful Hagar Erlich feels extremely alienated in the village she leaves in, she is married but without any kids. Comes in nine year- old Yiftach, the neighbor’s son that begins to keep her company in the lonely afternoons. A nice friendship unveils while we see Hagar taking Yiftach to her secret hideaway, where she watches one soldier rest after working in the field.
By sharing this new world with Yiftach, Hagar starts a journey of self-healing while coming to terms with the guilt she feels from tragic events in her life.
