Show Full Description

In this sharply observed dramedy about a literal and metaphorical fall—a women’s balcony collapses during a Bar Mitzvah—a close-knit Sephardic congregation in Jerusalem fractures along gender lines. Emil Ben-Shimon’s feature debut is a warm portrait of a community seeking to balance protocol with practical and progressive values. This rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power is accompanied by stirring music and sumptuous food.
