Elisha and Acher’s (Not So) Excellent Adventure

Recommended for older teens and adults

, , and

High school is hard, even for perfect student Elisha ben Abuya.

So, when a wisecrack gets him suspended, he decides to throw away his good guy persona in favor of a more rebellious reputation, with a new name, Acher. Much to the dismay of his protégé Meir, Acher is now seen as a negative influence, despite the important lessons Acher continues to pass on. Will Acher only be judged for who he has become, rather than who he was? Or will everyone realize that it is the soul, not the behavior, that make the man? In the vein of a classic ’80s movie, “Elisha and Acher’s (Not So) Excellent Adventure” explores, through a mix of comedy and drama, the dichotomy between the person and the soul.


This film was produced in collaboration with six teams of young writers, animators and programmers and was made possible in part by funds granted by the Covenant Foundation. The statements made and the views expressed, however, are solely the responsibility of the filmmakers.
