Eytan Fox's new Israeli film, Walking On Water, will receive its world premiere at the Berlinale Panorama, the most natural place for it to open, since half of the picture was shot in the German capital last year.

A Mossad agent befriends two German siblings, a brother and a sister, in order to approach their grandfather, an infamous Nazi war criminal who escaped to Latin America, and bring him to justice.

Starring Lior Ashkenazi (Late Marriage) as the Israeli secret agent and with Knut Berger and Carolina Peters as the German brother and sister, the film is produced by Amir Harel and Gal Uchovsky for Lama Productions. The Panorama section is hosting Fox and his producers for the second year running, after Yossi And Jaegger last year.
