Description

From the creator of Shtisel (BJFF2016), a dystopian thriller set after a brutal civil war that left Israel divided with Tel Aviv as its secular capital and Jerusalem as an Orthodox “Haredi Autonomy.” When a custody battle breaks out around the granddaughter of The Rebbe of Kreinitz (Shuli Rand, Ushpizin, BJFF 2005), peace between the two regions is put in jeopardy.  For Broide, a wheeler-dealer in the Autonomy who smuggles contraband between the two regions, a job kidnapping the little girl throws his own life into disarray.

 

Screening as part of the TLV TV Binge.
