Description

Orna loves her new real estate job and quickly gets promoted. But work becomes unbearable as her boss (Menashe Noy, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem) begins to make inappropriate advances. With her husband struggling to keep his new restaurant afloat, Orna is the main breadwinner for their three children, and must now choose between her job and her sense of self-worth. Director Michal Aviad’s (Dimona Twist, BJFF 2017) beautifully shot film tells a poignant story that echoes loudly in the era of #MeToo.

 

Followed by a conversation with Michal Gera Margaliot and Judith Rosenbaum (Nov. 8). Introduction by Judith Rosenbaum (Nov. 10)
