Film Series: The Farewell Party

2014. Israel. Dir: Tal Granit, Sharon Maymon. With Ze’ev Revach. 95 min.


In this darkly comic look at euthanasia, a group of seniors design a device to allow an ailing friend to end his own life. Word gets around, and soon they are met with an ethical dilemma as they receive a flood of requests to use the machine. Anchored by roundly superb performances from its ensemble, the film explores a difficult subject deftly with wit and humanity. Presented as part of the Ninth Annual Ring Family Israeli Film Series, featuring speaker Laura Blum, film critic.
