I Am Not (2021)

Director: Tomer Heymann

"Reteaming with Matan Daskal after Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life, Heymann further accents the intimacy of the story through the musical score" (Vladan Petkovic, Cineuropa)


A documentary film about Oren Levi, that is struggling to find his place in the world. Born in Guatemala and adopted by an Israeli couple as a baby, Oren had a troublesome childhood despite all the love and support of his family. Misdiagnosed with autism and mental illness, put into a psychiatric ward after a suicide attempt, he found it even harder to connect with the world that labeled him as “not normal” in many different ways. One day, armed with a simple video camera, Oren embarks on a journey to meet his biological parents and things begin to change. Tomer Heymann’s film tells a compelling story of a young man coming of age and discovering his true self among different landscapes, cultures, and languages.
