Film Series: Apples from the Desert

2014. Israel. Dir: Matti Harari, Arik Lubetsky. With Moran Rosenblatt. 96 min.

 

An Orthodox teen feels the pull of secularism away from her strict father and towards a cute college boy. Her escape isn’t a carefree, easy liberation but a hesitant and heartfelt act of self-definition by a woman who wants the best of both worlds: finding a new life while maintaining vital connection to faith and family. Presented as part of The Ninth Annual Ring Family Israeli Film Festival, featuring speaker Eran Polishuk, Director of Film and Media, Office of Cultural Affairs, Consulate General of Israel in New York.
