Saint Clara (Hebrew: קלרה הקדושה) is a 1996 Israeli film directed by Ari Folman and Ori Sivan. It is based on the novel The Ideas of Saint Clara by Pavel Kohout. The film was selected as the Israeli entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 69th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
The film takes place in 1999 in a small Israeli town, in which a young girl called Clara (Lucy Dubinchik) discovers that she has paranormal powers that allow her to predict the future.
That discovery causes mayhem in the town as its people try to take advantage of Clara's powers and people escape the town as her powers have discovered a leak in the nearby nuclear plant. Clara herself has to choose between her powers and her one true love.
