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.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.
