NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE
In this engrossing and intriguing drama, two sisters separated in their youth meet again as young women. Having taken divergent paths—Mira works in a hip Tel Aviv nightclub and Lenny remained in their countryside home to care for their father—they grapple with the traumatic circumstances that tore them apart. Will love and vulnerability lead them to a fragile reconciliation? This captivating feature from Dorit Hakim, a previous Venice Film Festival Silver Lion winner, boasts spectacular performances by Yuval Scharf (Footnote, The Wonders, NCJF ‘14) and Yaara Pelzig (the Policeman, NCJF ‘12). Opening night film of the New York Jewish Film Festival. (Dir: Dorit Hakim | Israel | 2016 | 110m | Hebrew w/ English subtitles)
