THE WOMEN'S BALCONY
ISRAEL'S #1 FILM OF THE YEAR!

Shlomit Nehama and Emil Ben-Shimon (Israel, 2016)
Official Site
96 minutes

An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a gender rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem, in this rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power.

When the women’s balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, leaving the rabbi’s wife in a coma and the rabbi in shock, the congregation falls into crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and creates an almost Lysistrata-type rift between the community’s women and men.

OPENING: August 25, 2017
