About The Queen Has No Crown

hi, my daughter (14) and me we saw your movie. I was deeply touched. It was so undisguised, honest. Please let us know, where we can find the song the Queen has no crown - i think, Tomer said, original the song says queen has no home… Is it from Chava Alberstein? Thank u very much - my daughter loves the song (and the movie as well), and I want to give it to her as a present. by the way: the movie gave us an idea of Passover. This year we are invited to our first passover near Haifa. Thanks a lot, warm greetings Martin

About the film : The Way Home

"Because he presented an exposed, direct and unapologetic homosexual experience."

Tomer Heymann’s sexual orientation has always been present in his cinematography. Already in his first film, ‘It Kinda Scares Me’ he examined how youths from a poverty-stricken neighborhood respond to it; in ‘Paper Dolls’, the very choice of foreign workers with a malleable gender identity for heroines did the trick. However, it is in the documentary series ‘The Way Home’, his most personal and individual work recapping 13 years of obsessive documentation, that Heymann has managed to pack in a complete homosexual beingness, exposed and direct and which is impossible not to identify with. It had everything: destructive relationship; forbidden love; partying and one-night stands; loneliness; healthy relationship hindered by self-sabotage mechanisms and so on. It wasn’t just a series about homosexuality- it also had the collapse of the family unit, the rough kibbutz way life that is crumbling down and a thousand further human pieces that make up the family mosaic. And yet, when Heymann’s camera skimmed over the exposed bodies of the colleagues of a military base or followed the faces of hunks in a memorial assembly in the square, we felt that such precise homosexual Israelism has never been successfully conveyed by anyone before.
