Hole in the Moon (Hebrew: חור בלבנה‬; Hor B'Levana) is a 1964 Israeli avant-garde-satiric movie directed by Uri Zohar.[2][3]

The film was heavily influenced by the French New Wave, particularly the films of Jean-Luc Godard. It was a response to the Zionist dramas of the 1950s, and satirizes the form by showing the production of one of these films.[4] Hole in the Moon is an avant-garde film, incorporating elements of metacinema and direct commentary on narrative cinema itself.
