Film Series: Fill the Void

2012. Israel. Dir: Rama Burshtein. With Hadas Yaron. 90 min.

The first major release by a female Orthodox Jewish director offers a warm, human window into that community by way of an accessibly Austen-esque drama. A young woman must weigh her emotions with her familial duty when she is asked to marry her widowered brother-in-law. Speaker: Lisa Dombrowski, Associate Professor of Film Studies.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
