About the Film
Shoelaces tells the story of a complicated relationship between an aging father and his special-needs son, whom he abandoned while he was still a young boy. The director of the movie, Jacob Goldwasser, wrote the following: "Shoelaces" is a special project for me. As a father of a special needs son, I never felt that the depiction of special needs characters on film rang true. However, when I saw Nevo Kimchi's work (the main actor), I was dumbfounded. He created a special needs character, who was human and real, filled with humor, optimism, and charm".
