2011. Israel. Dir: Jospeh Cedar. With Shlomo Bar-Aba. 103 min.
Cedar’s second Oscar-nominated film (after BEAUFORT) concerns a father and a son who happen to be rival Talmudic scholars at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University. As it appears the cantankerous old-timer will finally receive national recognition for his work, their relationship grows ever more complex. Speaker: Elisha Russ-Fishbane, Assistant Professor of Religion.
