Israeli film director Amos Gitai was honored at the 61st Locarno International Film Festival. He received the “Leopard of Honor” prize, which pays tribute each year to a major director who is still active. Gitai’s latest film, “One Day You will Understand” was shown as part of the August festival, and a retrospective of several of his other films was screened. One of Israel’s most celebrated filmmakers, Gitai is best known for works such as “Kippur” and “Kadosh.”
